Adrian Fisher

Lecturer

I specialise in remote sensing of the environment, using satellite imagery, airborne imagery, airborne lidar and field measurements. While my research has focused on mapping and monitoring vegetation structure in Australia, I have also developed methods for mapping clouds, shadows and surface water. I am a member of Earth Observation Australia and have previously worked for the Joint Remote Sensing Research Program at the University of Queensland, and Geoscience Australia. I also have long-standing interests in the geomorphology, geochronology and Quaternary environmental change in Australia’s desert landscapes, and am a member of the Australasian Quaternary Association.
