March 4, 2020

In February 2020, Marius started with his PhD at the Department of Remote Sensing. His research focus lies on the potential of earth observation for permafrost monitoring on a global scale. One key aspect of his work will be the detection and quantification of thawing dynamics and their environmental responses. Since permafrost cannot be directly measured with current satellite data, the identification of relevant environmental proxies, as well as the development of suitable algorithms and data combinations are major parts of his work.

Prior to his PhD, Marius finished his Bachelor’s degree in Physical Geography and Biology. Afterwards, he completed his Master’s studies in the EAGLE study program at the Department of Remote Sensing at the University of Würzburg. He was subsequently employed in the “African Protected Natural Assets” (APNA; funde by BMZ) project at the Department of Remote Sensing.
