Leader of the GeoRice project, the team has a strong background in project management and scientific development in SAR scattering of land surfaces and applications in forestry and agriculture. They have been involved in numerous studies for EU, ESA, NASA, JAXA, CNES and national organisations on the use of SAR in monitoring land surfaces.
GlobEO is a newly created company hosted at CESBIO and subcontracted to support the GeoRice project. GlobEO inherits a substantial experience developed at CESBIO in vegetation monitoring using satellite radar data at large scale, in a dozen of projects funded by the European Space Agency and the European Commission.
The project takes benefits of the long term collaboration with the Vietnam National Space Center which participated to past and present rice monitoring projects in Vietnam.
