  • Her research interest focuses on the thermal infrared remote sensing, in general, and the estimation of energy exchanges between the surface and the atmosphere, in particular. In the medium term, her interests include the evaluation, validation and improvement of methods used to estimate biophysical variables from satellite data (i.e., emissivity, surface temperature, albedo), required for the estimation of net radiation, the main driver of surface energy balance and evapotranspiration. Special emphasis is put on the uncertainty assessment. In the long term, her interests are focused on the study of the hydrology, the climate, the ecosystem change and the Earth’s radiant energy budget. She actively participates in the elaboration and evaluation of an evapotranspiration mapping tool (EVASPA), which produces evapotranspiration maps at relevant spatial and time scales for hydrological and agronomical purposes using satellite data. Further, she is specialized in the in situ estimation of surface emissivity in thermal infrared, using the Box method and the Temperature and Emissivity Separation algorithm, and therefore with the use and calibration of several types of thermal infrared radiometers. Recently, she is getting experience in the spectroscopy area using field spectroradiometers measuring spectra from visible to thermal infrared domain, and data from airborne hyperspectral sensors.
