Santiago Arellano

Researcher at Chalmers, Space, Earth and Environment, Microwave and Optical Remote Sensing

I am a physicist who study volcanic activity and the atmosphere with spectroscopic remote sensing from ground and space. I combine instrument development, field observations, data analysis and physical modelling and enjoy working with multidisciplinary, international groups to advance knowledge of our complex planet and contribute to its conservancy.
