Institution description The mission of the Institute for Applied Remote Sensing, founded in 2006, is to fuse earth observation (EO) techniques with interdisciplinary approaches in environmental research. Building on EURAC’s competence in mountain research our main focus are regional adapted research, products and services for the Alps and other mountainous regions in the world. Our research activities and projects address the current most pressing environmental problems within the context of global change, such as the impact of climate change, loss of biodiversity and reduction in air quality. From this research we are developing a range of EO based products and services for both local and regional applications, both responding to the demands of and in cooperation with authorities and decision makers. Our expertise includes the capacity to use a full range of EO techniques for optical and radar data processing, analysis and integration, the modelling of biophysical processes (hydrology, natural hazards), and working with climate data and climate scenarios. In addition we use a range of interdisciplinary concepts for risk and vulnerability assessments. Our own receiving station, located on the Renon peak (2260m); and an EO data centre give us direct access to satellite data and the ability to process them in near real-time.
