Leif Eriksson

Professor, Department of Space, Earth and Environment, Geoscience and Remote Sensing.

Leif Eriksson came to Chalmers 2004 and in 2022 he was promoted to professor in radar remote sensing. From 2012 to 2017 he acted as group leader for the research group Radar Remote Sensing and from 2017 to 2020 he was head of the faculty assembly at the Department of Space, Earth and Environment. His research is aimed at development of methods to make measurements of land and ocean with radar data. Focus is mainly on the use of synthetic aperture radar (SAR) from satellite and aircraft for studies of forest (biomass, clear cuts, storm damage) and sea ice (ice concentration, ice drift, ice thickness) as well as wind and currents at the sea surface.
