Nelson Ribeiro Pires

With a first degree in Physics-Optics and Engineering Sciences-Surveying Engineering, and a MSc degree in Surveying Engineering, I’m currently finishing my PhD Programme in Surveying Engineering at University of Porto with the research topic in Satellite Altimetry, specifically the Sea State Bias, a geophysical altimetric correction caused by the influence of local sea-state in the altimetric radar pulse. Past and recent research, includes subjects in tropospheric delays from GNSS for application in Coastal Altimetry, aerial and close-range photogrammetric studies with drones for coastal monitoring and map production, multi-spectral and SAR-imaging remote sensing for ocean wind-generated waves and ocean dynamics.
