Remote Sensing of Water Systems

Welcome to the Remote Sensing of Water Systems (RSWS) group, a joint professorship between the University of Zurich and the Swiss Federal Institute of Aquatic Science and technology, Eawag!

RSWS group members develop and apply novel approaches building upon coupled models and observations to advance water systems research. Our research activities are tailored to increased process understanding and to contribute tackling key societal challenges including water scarcity, resource depletion and environmental pollution.

RSWS and Remote Sensing are two professorships making up the Remote Sensing Laboratories (RSL), responsible for teaching and research in remote sensing at the Department of Geography.
