Roselyne Lacaze

PhD Physics, Prospection, Studies

Her experience relates to land surface remote sensing, specialized in the retrieval methodologies of continental biophere variables from multi-angular Earth Observation data. During her technical assistance mission at MEDIAS-France, she participated in the POLDER/PARASOL project funded by CNES, in the FP5/CYCLOPES project (focusing on the use of SPOT/VEGETATION sensor), and in the FP6/geoland project in which she contributed in the algorithm definition and product validation. In the continuity, she has coordinated the global part of the FP7/geoland2 project, which was the precursor R&D project of the Copernicus Global Land Service.

She is currently involved in the Copernicus Global  Land Service where she coordinates the scientific activities, in particular the definition of algorithm, and the validation of products, related to the production of vegetation and energy variables. She also manages the FP7/ImagineS project.
