Mgr. Róbert Pazúr, PhD.

Agricultural land may be used by humans in different ways and intensities. This PhD aims to investigate the availabilities of remote sensing instruments and other spatial/statistical data to map the land use intensities over the agricultural landscapes. You will explore the time series of Landsat and Sentinel-2 imagery, in combination with additional data (e.g,, Copernicus spatial data platform, aerial imagery) to identify the evidence of the specific land-use types in agricultural landscapes (e.g., moving, grazing, ploughing, fertilizing). A successful candidate should be fluent in English, be capable of working in the field of spatial analysis, remote sensing and data science. This PhD position offers a great way of joining international research projects.
