SCIENTIFIC ACTIVITY

MAIN CURRENT ACTIVITIES

 

The large part of the scientific activity is currently related to the European Space Agency satellite mission called FORUM (The Far-infrared Outgoing Radiation Understanding and Monitoring) of which Tiziano Maestri is one of the proposers and developers. FORUM, which will be devoted at providing the first high spectral resolution measurements from space in the far infrared part of the electromagnetic spectrum, will be sent on orbit in 2026 as the 9th ESA Earth Explorer mission.

 

General scientific activities include:

 

  • Numerical modelling of the atmospheric radiative transfer covering various aspects ranging from gas spectroscopy to multiple scattering of electromagnetic waves in presence of spherical and non-spherical particles.

 

  • Development of inversion techniques to infer optical and microphysical properties of clouds and aerosols from high spectral resolution measurements mainly from the IR spectral range.

 

  • Studies on clouds based on a multi-sensor approach with attention to the validation and characterisation of optical properties of cirrus clouds over the entire electromagnetic spectrum (from microwave to visible wavelengths with special focus on the FarIR).

 

  • Development of cloud identification and classification algorithms from high spectral resolution infrared data mainly using using machine learning techniques (Support Vector Machine algorithms and Principal component analysis).
