The Luxembourg Institute of Science and Technology (LIST) is a Research and Technology Organization (RTO) active in the fields of materials, environment and IT. By transforming scientific knowledge into technologies, smart data and tools, LIST empowers citizens in their choices, public authorities in their decisions and businesses in their strategies.

 

You will be part of the LIST Environmental Research and Innovation department. As part of a Research and Technology Organization (RTO), the work of the Environmental Research and Innovation (ERIN) Department tackles some of the major environmental challenges our society is facing today (e.g. adaptation to climate change, ecosystem resilience, sustainable energy systems, efficient use of renewable resources, environmental pollution prevention and control).

 

To this end, the mission of the ERIN department is:

 

(1) to conduct impact-driven scientific research and development, as well as technological innovation;

(2) to support companies in the implementation of new environmental regulations and advise governments

on determining sustainable policies for the future.

 

Within the ERIN department, the ‘Environmental Sensing and Modelling’ (ENVISION) unit contributes to this mission by carrying out impact-driven research, geared towards monitoring, forecasting and predicting environmental systems in a changing world. An interdisciplinary team of around 50 scientists, engineers, post-docs and PhD candidates is developing new environmental process understanding, alongside new tools and technologies – operating at unprecedented spatial and temporal scales.

 

Embedded into the ENVISION unit, the ‘Remote sensing and natural resources modelling’ research group capitalizes on a blend of remote sensing data obtained from space- and air-borne platforms, as well as in situ measured data, for producing information on the status of natural resources for public and private stakeholders.


 


Responsibilities

How will you contribute?


You will work in the context of the Global Development Assistance - Disaster Resilience project (ESA) and the Citywatch project (FNR grant), using multi source remote sensing data for retrieving information supporting urban management applications. More precisely You will have the opportunity to analyse different types of satellite imagery to monitor urban sprawl over time and to detect floodwater in urban areas. Model-based and EO-driven LIST algorithms, based on SAR intensity and multitemporal interferometric SAR coherence, will be used to map buildings and to investigate the effect that the appearance of floodwater has on the SAR signal recorded over urbanized areas. You will compare the classification maps with independent datasets, evaluate the limitations of current algorithms and propose possible improvements.
