Dr. Marcel Buchhorn joined VITO in 2016 after working in bio-geoscientific remote sensing around the world. Dr. Buchhorn’s multi-disciplinary background—including an MSc in Forestry, an MSc in Sustainable Resource Management, a PhD in Bio-geoscientific Remote Sensing and studies in bio-energy, imaging spectroscopy, BRDF corrections, RS algorithm development, and project management—has made him a perfect fit for the VITO Remote Sensing team.

Just like the pictures on your TV, satellite imagery is made up of tiny squares, each a different shade of grey, and each of which helps to explain our impact on the earth.

Within the biodiversity team, he works on algorithm development and implementation for global land cover products and other biodiversity variables for multiple RS platforms and sensors.
