Personal profile

Personal profile

Richard Crabbe is a professional spatial scientist with many years of research experience in novel application of earth observation data, machine learning and biophysical models to solving real world problems in pasture and forest systems. Until 2016, Richard was working on a carbon flux monitoring project in Europe, with a particular interest in integrating satellite remote sensing into soil CO2 efflux monitoring. Through Richard’s relation with the Global Change Research Institute of the Czech Academy of Sciences, he facilitated the creation of an international carbon flux monitoring project at the University of Energy and Natural Resources in Ghana. Over the years, Richard has been on different projects as a remote sensing expert in performing various roles including:

  • Estimating pasture biomass and species composition using Synthetic Aperture Radar data
  • Estimating CO2 emissions from soils using Landsat-8
  • Evaluating the impact of extreme warm temperature events on vegetation phenology
