Imaging
Imaging is a broad subject area encompassing the representation, manipulation and understanding of the physical world on a 2D array, at scales from human visual through robotic vehicle and aerobots through to orbital views around our planet, the Sun and the celestial bodies in the Solar System and beyond into the Universe. Our research is focused on developing enabling imaging technologies and corresponding datasets to allow new scientific understanding with applications centred on space and climate physics. Imaging technologies include instrument development, algorithm development and software implementation, massive data processing and the display and dissemination of imaging products using 3D enabled and web-GIS systems. We create novel geospatial products for planetary surfaces and atmospheres at scales from a rover vehicle through aerobot through to global. These include 3D land surface, surface roughness and sub-surface topography, 3D maps of smoke and cloud-top winds and heights, 3D maps of solar Coronal Mass Ejections, land surface broadband BRDF and albedo, spectral BRDF as well as their visual 2D and 3D representation. Scientific studies include looking at the relationship of solar CMEs with terrestrial (and extra-terrestrial) weather and climate (with the Solar Group) as well as time sampling issues concerned with satellite vs ground-based atmospheric measurements. Our current focus on planetary science is to develop 3D workstations for processing rover stereo imagery from planetary surfaces (with the Planetary Group) and the development of novel life detection systems employing hyperfine hyperspectral sensors and UV-induced fluorescence.
