Dr. Urs Wegmüller

President of Executive Board, director, and Senior project scientist


The main experience of U. Wegmüller is in the development of applications of active and passive microwave data. His research included field experiments (ground-based radiometry and scatterometry, combined with surface roughness, soil moisture, and dielectric measurements), processing, analyses and interpretation of space-borne data, as well as the development and use of theoretical and empirical scatter and emission models for soil and vegetation. Currently he is very active in SAR interferometric data processing and the development of applications of single-pass as well as repeat- pass SAR interferometry for topographic mapping, differential motion, land-use classification, and the retrieval of geophysical and biophysical parameters over land (including forestry, agricultural, and hydrological applications).
