I investigate the processes that underlie the interaction between the land surface and the atmosphere.
My enquiries at the scale of landscape elements (ecosystems; natural and human-made) are precursor to making accurate predictions at the larger regional and global scales.
It takes less than 10 ns for light to travel 1 km and back. This makes light-based sensing very useful for observations in air or water, or glass. In fibre-optics, glass conduits are able to carry light across long distances. The photons in light are scattered by atoms, sometimes Raman-scattered, introducing detectable shifts in wavelength in relationship to the temperature. DTS is an opto-electronic technology for temperature sensing, using fibre-optic cable as a probe. If required, a very long probe.
