Institute for the Electromagnetic Sensing of the Environment

Antonio Pepe received the Laurea degree (equivalent Master of Science) in Electronics Engineering and the Ph.D. degree in Electronics and Telecommunication Engineering from the University of Napoli Federico II, Napoli, Italy, in 2000 and 2007, respectively. In 2001 he joined the IREA-CNR where he is a permanent researcher. He was a Visiting Scientist at the University of Texas, Austin, in 2005, at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL), Caltech, Pasadena in 2009, and at the East China Normal University, Shanghai from 2014 to 2016 (one monthly visit per year). Dr. Pepe acts as a reviewer for several peer-reviewed international journals. From 2012 to 2016 he was also an Adjunct Professor of Signal Theory at the Università della Basilicata, Potenza, Italy, and in 2017 he was Visiting Professor of Systems of Wireless Communications at the University of Naples, Italy. He was the recipient of the 2014 Best Reviewer mention of the IEEE Geoscience and Remote Sensing Letters. His main research interests include the development of advanced DInSAR algorithms aimed at monitoring surface deformation phenomena induced by subsidence, volcano activities, and earthquakes, with a particular interest toward the phase unwrapping problems. More recently, he has developed research activities for the generation of DInSAR products through the new generation SAR instruments, for the generation of hybrid scanSAR-to-stripmap DInSAR analyses, and for the integration of SAR and optical images.

Earth Observation and Geospatial Analysis presents current research related to the observation of Earth with sensors operating at various wavelengths. The book describes the use of remote sensing technologies for detecting and monitoring Earth's environmental changes (including surface and atmosphere) and its modifications over time. Chapters cover different research aspects in the framework of remote sensing with a particular emphasis on the use of hyperspectral and optical imageries. The presented experiments concern the study of soil properties, the analysis of land use/land changes, the analysis of bio-aerosols as well as the color of water, the investigation of the scar and samples of a cosmic meteoritic impact, and the theoretical treatment of the operation of spatial coordinate transformation in noisy environments. Overall, this book provides an overview of the adopted methodologies for the accomplishment of geospatial analyses to identify environmental changes due to climate change and natural phenomena.
