Richard Bamler

His work

Richard’s research interests are focussed on developing algorithms for optimised information extraction from remote sensing data. Together with this team he has developed algorithms and operational processing systems for almost all German, as well as several European, Earth observation satellite missions. This work has covered a wide range of remote sensing technologies from radar and optical imaging to atmospheric sounding. The data and information collected during these international, interdisciplinary projects contribute greatly to our understanding about changes on the Earth’s surface and within the atmosphere.

About Richard

Richard studied electrical engineering at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) before completing his Ph.D. and postdoctoral teaching qualification there too. He joined the German Aerospace Center (DLR) in 1989. He is now director of the Remote Sensing Technology Institute at the DLR as well as professor for remote sensing technology at the TUM. He has also spent time as a visiting scientist at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory at NASA in the USA, and as a visiting professor at the University of Innsbruck in Austria.
