  4. 4. Research Statement Modeling of multi-temporal environmental data sets (for example Land surface temperature, Precipitation, NDVI, Elevation, Landcover, etc.) is key issue in climatic change studies, in geoscience (volcanic and earthquake hazards, etc.), in agriculture and food security studies, in terrain analysis, in meteorology, etc. These are the scientific fields, I work with and I develop new methods as well as added value data products. More details hereunder: The quantification of TERRAIN knowledge is a key factor in an attempt to characterize the landscape, assess it's sensitivity to natural hazards, support environmental analysis and planning in a changing world. Topography is the manifestation of diverse dynamic processes that shape our planet (examples being landslides, volcanoes, water table variability, flooding, glaciers melting, urban heat islands/heat waves, aridity periods, wild fires, etc.). Processes monitoring requires regularly repeated acquisition of accurate, moderate to high resolution data for earth's relief (digital elevation models-DEMs), landcover, and biophysics (land surface temperature-LST, soil moisture, etc.). Quantification of processes also requires a terrain partition framework, which transforms the digital representation of the landscape to elementary objects. Physical processes are scale dependent and define various continuous or discontinuous terrain partition frameworks. A unified terrain partition framework is impossible to achieve; instead various process dependent object partition schemes are established. Three examples follow: • The modeling of CORINE landcover/landuse partition framework (Miliaresis 2006) that allowed the mapping of susceptibility of Corine classes to natural and environmental hazards. • Biomass estimate form active remote sensing sensors and the modeling of the effect of DTM and DSM mis-registration as a function of tree canopy density (Miliaresis and Delikaraoglou 2009). • The automated segmentation of urban landscape to elementary objects from LiDAR high resolution DEMS providing a city partition framework suitable for biophysical parameters integration (Miliaresis & Kokkas,2007). Currently BIOPHYSICAL DATA SETS are computed from the satellite-based remotely sensed images with high temporal resolution at a moderate resolution scale, allowing the day and night monitoring of earth’s surface. An example being the acquisitions from MODerate-resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on board the two EOS satellites, Terra and Aqua. For example thermal imagery products are available on regular and frequent basis for both land and oceans. Data availability stimulates the analysis of the long time series of multi-temporal images in an attempt to closely monitor regions and provide information about the spatial and temporal changes in temperature. Towards this end, new methods allowed the monitoring of terrain spatio-temporal thermal signature under a completely new framework: • Thermal invariant regions mapping in both space and time from MODIS LST imagery, Miliaresis (2009) • A method for elevation, latitude, and longitude decorrelation stretch of multi- temporal LST imagery Miliaresis (2012; 2013; 2014) and revealing thermal anomalies across vast (continental scale) regions and allowing the monitoring of terrain spatio-temporal thermal signature under a completely new spatial framework. In addition, diurnal temperature range (DTR) is a meteorological term that relates to the variation in temperature that occurs between day- [ 4 / 14 ]
  5. 5. time (maximum) and night-time (minimum) daily temperatures. Daily temperature oscillation is greatest in the planetary boundary layer, controlled by many factors including: latitude, distance from the sea, land cover, elevation, climatic zone, humidity, soil moisture, atmospheric circulation, clear skies, the intensity of solar radiation. The day and night temperature oscillations are also controlled by thermal inertia (a measure of the subsurface's ability to store heat during the day and re-emit it during the night). Although spatial modeling of DTR from meteorological stations can provide reliable estimates (Hill, 2013), meteorological stations are often too sparse to make reliable estimates by interpolation. • MODIS near diurnal LST oscillations (day minus night LST) were computed per pixel for the 01:30 (night) and 13:30 (day) local crossing time passes of the Aqua satellite for the year 2008 in Greece (Miliaresis and Tsatsaris, 2011) and the temporal and the spatial characteristics were mapped. These estimates do not represent the diurnal temperature range since 01:30 local time LST is not minimum while, 13:30 local time LST is not maximum. Two more thermal images for the 10:30 (day) and the 22:30 (night) local crossing time passes of Terra satellite are acquired daily. • Miliaresis (2014) applied a new technique to all four daily MODIS LST acquisitions from both the Aqua and the Terra satellites, in order to produce a new multi- temporal LST image sequence that enhance and isolate the day and night LST variations in Greece. The enhanced imagery identified regions with different day/night LST oscillation variability, allowing environmental terrain characterization in an attempt to support agriculture productivity and land cover studies in the context of emerging climatic change. Such efforts seek to better understand the links between human activities (food supplies, agriculture, landuse planning, etc.) and the variety of impacts of climate change. For example night temperatures are expected to increase at a faster rate than day temperatures due to less radiant heat loss because of increased cloudiness (Alward et al., 1999). The duration of a crop growth cycle is conditioned by the daily temperatures absorbed by the plant. Therefore, an increase in daily temperature will speed up plant development by reducing the duration between sowing and harvesting (Hertel et al., 2010). Thus, crop productivity may fall with the shortening of a cycle. In addition high night temperature decreases production by decreasing the photosynthetic function (Turnbull et al., 2002). It is quite clear that the spatial modeling of biophysical data (landcover, LST, sea surface temperature-SST, biomass, tree canopy density, aerosol optical thickness & particle density, vegetation density, soil moisture, etc.) is of great importance in assessing environmental change. Thus, a variety of quantitative techniques has been developed to automate the extraction of terrain features including segmentation, representation- classification while new data analysis/data modeling techniques were derived and new applications of biophysical datasets are revealed. Key issues are the spatio-temporal monitoring of environmental changes, the integration of biophysical parameters to terrain and geographic objects in order to support environmental analysis, decision support, planning, etc. My research efforts are focused in the fields: 1. TERRAIN MODELING: Terrain segmentation, Terrain pattern recognition, Urban terrain object recognition, Digital terrain analysis, Terrain evaluation, Geomorphometry, Site selection, Landcover mapping, Landuse modeling, Antarctic terrain analysis Fire risk, Flood hazard. 2. BIOPHYSICAL GEOSCIENCES: Thermal inertia mapping, Geothermal sensing, Bio-pattern analysis, Bio-physical terrain classification, Biopattern analysis, Natural hazards, Volcanic hazard/risk monitoring, Earthquakes biopattern modeling [ 5 / 14 ]
  6. 6. 3. ENVIRONMETRICS: Elevation latitude longitude decorrelation stretch, Diurnal oscillation enhancement, Selective variance reduction, Temporal frequency enhancement, Spatio-temporal processes modelling 4. CLIMATIC CHANGE MONITORING: Land Surface temperature, Sea Surface Temperature, Precipitation, Aerosol, Soil Moisture, Albedo, Vegetation Density Future research plans: 1. Map "anomalies" from multi-temporal data (including precipitation) in an attempt to recognise genetic physical processes. Temporal frequency enhancement of biophysical data & terrain bio-pattern definition. Accuracy assessment of biophysical data sets. Environmetrics of man-made objects from high resolution terrain data (LiDAR) and biophysical data-sets. 2. Integrate multidimensional biophysical data (diurnal LST cycle, aerosols, vegetation density, soil moisture, wind assessments) in the representation of terrain features, landcover & landuse entities and man-made objects -AND SUPPORT- environmental decision making, planning, food security studies, landcover/landuse modeling., etc. 3. Time dependent monitoring & modeling of biophysical processes in Eastern Mediterranean Countries, Arabian Peninsula (Oman), Central and South Africa (Botswana) through the integration of precipitation, LST cycle, vegetation, aerosols, soil moisture data-sets. 4. To decompose the spatio-temporal variability of the geophysical component that might be evident in remotely sensed biophysical data sets (ground data will be used too for testing and calibration purposes).The underlying theoretical basis is that the earth crust is constantly subject to endogenic processes (stress from tectonic plates motion, fluid motions in earth mantle, chemical reactions, etc.) and exogenic processes (climate change, etc., etc,) with magnitude that vary in both space and time, RESULTING occasionally to earthquakes, volcanic activity etc., etc. Resources necessary to carry out my research proposal • Environmental data & imagery acquired from earth orbiting satellites (Landsat, Sentinel, MODIS etc.) and GIS databases, that are available for free (NASA, USGS, ESA). • Commercial software for programming, data processing and visualization ( MatLab, SPSS, Idrisi) as well as open source software (QGIS, ILWIS, R, Octave, MultiSpec, WhiteBox, Libre Office, etc.). • Occasionally field work is required for model and data evaluation.
