Laboratory of Earth Observation


Image and Signal Processing group

ISP · Image and Signal Processing group

The Image and Signal Processing (ISP) Group at the Universitat de València (Spain) develops data analysis techniques and vision algorithms. We focus on methods able to extract knowledge from empirical data drawn by sensory (mostly imaging) physical systems. These measurements depend on the properties of the scenes and the physics of the acquisition process.


The Global Change Unit

The Gobal Change Unit (GCU) was established as a Reseach group of the University of Valencia in 1996, based on the initiative of its current director PhD. José A. Sobrino, professor of Earth Physics in this University. Nowadays it’s constituted by the following members, PhD Juan Carlos Jiménez, Juan Cuenca, Ana Ruescas, Guillem Soria, Mieria Romaguera and Jauad El Kharraz, as well as the PhD students, Yves Julien, Mariam Atitar, Belen Franch, Victoria Hidalgo and Cristian Mattar.


Group of Astronomy and Space Sciences

The Grupo de Astronomía y Ciencias del Espacio (GACE) or Astronomy and Space Science Group is an astrophysics research  group integrated in the Image Processing Laboratory (IPL) of the University of  Valencia, Spain.

GACE was created, in 1990, as a split of the Astronomy and Astrophysics Department of the University of Valencia.  Its main topics of research are the development of High Energy Astrophysics instrumentation for spatial vehicles,  the study of X and Gamma emitter astronomic sources and the study of solar magnetism and solar irradiance  and solar-terrestrial relations, both from ground and spatial platforms.

Research topics at GACE are:

  • Study of X and Gamma emitters sources. Binary stars. Be type systems.
  • Stellar structure and evolution. Magnetic activities. Absolute parameters.
  • Solar physics. Solar irradiance. Photospheric magnetism. Solar-terrestrial relations
  • Earth atmosphere energetic events.
