The position is suitable for part-time employment.
Together with the German Remote Sensing Data Center, the Remote Sensing Technology Institute forms DLR’s Earth Observation Center – the competence center for Earth observation in Germany.
In order to better estimate the availability of water in Peru in the future, the Peruvian water authority ANA, in cooperation with DLR, wants to create more accurate maps of water depth (bathymetry) with the help of satellite data. Water depth can be determined in shallow water from calibrated multispectral data, since the penetration depth of light into water depends on wavelength.
The master thesis will compare the suitability of different satellites (PlanetScope, Sentinel-2, Landsat-8/9) and subsequently derive the bathymetry of several lakes. The work also includes an experimental part: Together with DLR colleagues, you will participate in an international measurement campaign on lakes in Peru lasting several weeks and help to collect measurement data that will be used to adapt the data analysis software to the Peruvian lakes and to validate the satellite data.
This research center is part of the Helmholtz Association of German Research Centers. With more than 42,000 employees and an annual budget of over € 5 billion, the Helmholtz Association is Germany’s largest scientific organisation.
