Dr Enrico Tomelleri (leader), free University of Bolzano, Italy, etomelleri@unibz.it


  Dr Leonidas Toulios, Hellenic agricultural organisation DEMETER, Greece, leonidastoulios@gmail.com

Leonidas is a senior researcher and Director of the ‘Industrial and Forage Crops Institute’, of the ‘Hellenic Agricultural Organisation ‘DEMETER’’, based in Larissa, and visiting professor at the University of Thessaly and the Technological Educational Institution of Larissa. He studied agricultural engineering (BSc) and soil science (MSc) specialised in Remote Sensing and GIS applications in agriculture (PhD). He is leader and participant in several research projects at national and European level, dealing with the use of remote sensing data for monitoring agricultural crops from space.


 Dr Christiaan van der Tol, University of Twente, Netherlands,  c.vandertol@utwente.nl  

Christiaan van der Tol is specialized in plant-water-atmosphere relations and solar induced chlorophyll fluorescence. He developed the ‘Soil-Canopy-Observation for Photosynthesis and Energy fluxes model (SCOPE) for remote sensing of vegetation structure and functioning.


Dr Radoslaw Juszczak, Poznan University of Life Sciences, radjusz@up.poznan.pl


Dr George Petropoulos, Hellenic agricultural organisation DEMETER, Ministry of Agriculture, Greece, petropoulos.george@gmail.com

George P. Petropoulos (PhD, King’s College London UK) is an Associate Researcher in Remote Sensing & GIS at the Dept. of Soil & Water Resources of the Institute of Industrial & Forage Crops (IIFC) of the Hellenic Agricultural Organization “ELGO DEMETER”, Greece. He also holds a Marie Curie Fellowships with the Dept. of Mineral Resources Engineering of the Technical University of Greece. Previously (until 02/2018) he was Associate Professor in Remote Sensing & GIS at the Dept. of Geography & Earth Sciences, Aberystwyth University, UK. His research is focusing on the exploitation of technologically advanced EO sensors and synergistic multi-sensor EO modelling & GIS geospatial techniques for obtaining spatiotemporal estimates of key state variables characterising land surface processes.


Dr John Connolly, Dublin City University, john.b.connolly@dcu.ie

John, in his role as lecturer, teaches several courses in climate change; natural ecosystems and GIS at undergraduate and postgraduate levels and will be supervising several PhD students over the next four years. His research interests are focused on using remote sensing to study land use, land use change and carbon dynamics in natural environments in Ireland, Europe and across the Arctic.
