Event: Making SAR Data Accessible – New Sensors, Tools and Services
When: Wednesday 28 November 2018, 02:00 PM – 03:00 PM
Time Zone: Eastern Standard Time (UTC/GMT-5)
Speaker: Dr. Franz Meyer, Chief Scientist, NASA Alaska Satellite Facility Distributed Active Archive Center (ASF DAAC)
From October 2003 to February 2007, Dr. Meyer was a Senior Remote Sensing Scientist with the Remote Sensing Technology Institute, German Aerospace Center (DLR), Oberpfaffenhofen. There, his scientific work was focused on InSAR techniques for current and future SAR satellites (e.g., TerraSAR-X and TerraSAR-L), the correction and modeling of atmospheric effects in InSAR data, and persistent scatterer interferometry. Since 2007, he has been with the Geophysical Institute, University of Alaska Fairbanks, where he currently holds the position of Associate Professor for Radar Remote Sensing. His current work includes studies of ionospheric and tropospheric effects on SAR and InSAR, new methods of InSAR time series analysis, SAR & InSAR applications, SAR processing, SAR data quality analysis, and integrating SAR into disaster monitoring workflows. Since 2014 he has also been the Chief Scientist of ASF, where he is responsible for interactions with the growing SAR user community, the generation of new value-added products, and the prototyping of on-demand services.
