Marco Chini

Luxembourg Institute of Science and Technology (LIST) • Lead Research and Technology Associate

Marco Chini is responsible for managing and developing research and innovation projects focusing on remote sensing, urban monitoring and natural resource and disaster management within the “Remote sensing and natural resources modelling” group of LIST. His research objectives have always focused on achieving a better understanding, characterization and monitoring of land surfaces and their changes. Capitalizing on the deluge of satellite EO data, these research efforts eventually have the aim to develop and apply methodologies and algorithms enabling a monitoring of different phenomena at large scale, e.g., floodwater and natural disasters mapping, soil moisture retrieval, etc. Since 2016, he has been the Luxembourg representative for the Copernicus Relay and Academy networks, which are awareness-raising initiatives of the Copernicus satellite program. Since 2021, he has been part of the scientific team of the global flood monitoring (GFM) service, funded by JRC and integrated into the GloFAS system. GFM provides continuous monitoring of floods worldwide by immediately processing and analyzing all incoming Copernicus Sentinel-1 Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) satellite data.
