Prasun K Gangopadhyay has a M.Sc. in Geo-information Science and Earth Observation of ITC (2003), the Netherlands. His main research interest is focused on thermal and hyperspectral based remote sensing applications in environmental geosciences.
Since 1995 he is working on coal mining and related environmental problems in different countries. He has gained experience in coal mining related environmental problems (such as surface and subsurface coalfire detection, monitoring and estimation of related emissions and impact of coal mining on environment) using remote sensing as a prime tool in India, China and Australia.
His PhD research topic, “Coalfire related CO2 emissions and remote sensing”Utrecht University, the Netherlands) is in the final phase. He has published scientific articles in journals, edited books and other media.
His future research interest is working on coalfire mapping in global context using remote sensing. Other than coalfire he is keenly interested in other high temperature events such as volcanoes and the quantitative estimation of different gases from these sources with remote sensing.
