"Global change and local livelihoods are inherently intertwined, while at the same time research on both is often separated. Deriving information on our rapidly changing planet from space helps bridging this gap – by providing novel spatio-temporal information, but also by providing iconic showcases that illustrate how humankind transforms the Earth system. My research is devoted to deepen our understanding on land use transformations and how these affect coupled human-environment systems."
I received my first degree in Physical Geography from Trier University, Germany, in 1994, an M.Sc. in GIS from Edinburgh University, UK, in 1995, and a Ph.D. in Remote Sensing from Trier University in 2001. During my assistant professorship at Humboldt University Berlin (2002 to 2006), I focused on remote sensing of urban environments. In 2006, I founded the Geomatics Lab with a focus on Remote Sensing of Land Systems at Humboldt University. I was director/deputy director of HU’s Geography Department from 2007 to 2015. I served the Global Land Project Scientific Steering Committee from 2012 to 2017, the German Committee Future Earth from 2016-2018 and the Landsat Science Team since 2012.

GLP Fellow Patrick Hostert invites oral presentations and posters that deepen insights on land scarcity, limitations, and related advances in remote sensing and improved modeling of land systems. The session will take place on in August during the KOSMOS Conference in Berlin, Germany.
GLP Fellow Patrick Hostert and GLP Members Volker Radeloff and Crystal Schaaf will serve a five-year term from 2018 to 2023. The team’s primary responsibility is to conduct Landsat-based scientific research and engineering studies, develop useful data products and applications and share the results of its work with the USGS, NASA and others.
