I am primarily working on observing the land surface with an imaging spectrometer on board of Earth Observation satellites. For this project, we want to match specific soil reflectance properties derived from satellite imageries with physical soil samples from the ground. The most interesting research question is about how many soil samples are needed to characterize an area of interest and how machine learning techniques can help to overcome the scarcity of soil samples.
