Randy Scharien

Co-Investigator, University of Victoria

Randy develops and implements remote sensing tools for understanding atmosphere-sea ice-ocean exchanges and polar marine ecosystem parameters at critical scales. His research blends field investigations with multiscale remote sensing data from airborne and satellite based platforms, with emphasis on synthetic aperture radar (SAR). His expertise extends to use of SAR for assisting people living in the Arctic and using sea ice for subsistence and livelihood activities, enhanced seasonal sea-ice predictions, and microwave modelling.
