Our research lies in the broad remit of physical, atmospheric and Earth System sciences. Our team consists of experts in land surface modelling, hydrology, micrometeorology, earth observation of snow and soil moisture, snow physics, snow - vegetation interactions and microwave remote sensing. Much of our work consists in developing innovative models that help us understand physical processes at the Earth’s surface and their interactions with the atmosphere. Our modelling work is complemented and informed by extensive field campaigns in the Arctic and sub-Arctic.
Details of the two main strands of our research can be found below. CORES is also involved in a project investigating data assimilation between EO products and land surface models, thus providing a link between our two research areas.
