Dr Anibal Gusso - UCR International Researcher

Domain expert in thermal remote sensing and mathematical forecasting


Anibal Gusso completed his undergraduation in the Physics Institute of Universidade Federal do Rio Grande do Sul (UFRGS) in Porto Alegre, Brazil. He received a Master degree in the Center for Remote Sensing and Meteorological Research of UFRGS. Anibal Gusso obtained his PhD degree at UFRGS developing mathematical modeling (knowledge-based approach) for agricultural production forecast. He has participated on several remote sensing projects for urban, rural and environmental researches since 2000´ for the United Nations Development Program (UNDP), at the National Company for Food Supply (CONAB), the National Institute of Meteorology (INMET) and National Institute for Space Research (INPE) in Brazil. Currently, he acts as researcher at the Polytechnic School of Universidade do Vale do Rio dos Sinos (UNISINOS)/Brazil where he is conducting research on applied physics to the Earth observation systems. He teaches sustainable development and has experience in the following areas: thermal remote sensing, thermal processes of the earth’s surface, time series analysis, systems for agricultural monitoring, algorithms for image processing and urban environment development.
