time-series remote sensing


Andreas Dietz is a research scientist and part of the team Polar and Cold Regions at the German Remote Sensing Data Center, German Aerospace Center (DLR), Wessling, Germany. At DLR since 2009, he was engaged in time series processing and analysis of remote sensing data within the projects CAWa (Central Asian Water), Timeline, and since 2015 a DFG funded project about global snow cover processing using Advanced Very High Resolution Radiometer (AVHRR) data. He conducted his PhD with the topic “Changes in Central Asian Snow Cover Characteristics between 1986 and 2012 derived from medium resolution remote sensing data“ in collaboration with the University of Würzburg, which was finished in 2013. Since then his research focused more and more on the analysis of the terrestrial cryosphere and developments of global snow cover. The Global SnowPack is a product that emerged from this research.
