Research overview

The overall aim of my project is to find new measures to quantify land degradation in high-latitude environments by studying spatial landscape patterns.

Soil erosion and vegetative processes are strongly interconnected with each other controlled by various climatic, geomorphological and anthropogenic factors. However, the underlying heterogeneity in the landscape induced by minor changes in the topography can significantly influence those processes by altering microclimate, ecological conditions and erosion susceptibility. Understanding how topography governs these processes will provide important implications about how the landscape was formed and will evolve in the future.

To achieve this, high-resolution multispectral UAV data, satellite imagery and field instruments measuring soil moisture and temperature are used for analysis to study arctic ecosystems at different spatial and temporal scales.
