UHMI – Ukrainian Scientific and Research Institute for HydroMeteorology

Ukrainian Hydrometeorological Institute (UHMI) was established in 1953 and is the main institute for meteorological and agrometeorological research in Ukraine. Agrometeorological Group which is a part of the Satellite Application Lab at the Atmospheric Research Department participates in this the project. Our team is conducting research related to agrometeorological modelling, model validation, application of satellite data for crop monitoring and estimation of agrometeorological parameters.

alexeyOleksii A. Kryvobok (the head of Lab, PhD) research interests include agrometeorological modelling, data processing, application of satellite data for agrometeorological and environmental monitoring, geoinformatics, software engineering. He has contributed to several research papers treating remote sensing in agrometerology and land research, semantics of complex scientific data, metadata for agriculture. Currently he is a member of different international scientific groups.

Volodymyr Osadchyy ( Professor, PhD) research interests include agrometeorological modelling, data processing, application of satellite data for agrometeorological and environmental monitoring, geoinformatics, software engineering.

oleksanderMr. Oleksandr Kryvoshein is a PhD student received his MSc in GIS methods in Geography in 2009 at the Kyiv National University, since 2009 he is a researcher at the Satellite Application Laboratory. He is a developer of analysis tools for GIS. The main objective of his research activity is connected with the studying of crops growth simulation and crop yield forecast.

bobrychefOleksandr Bobryshev (master’s student, engineer in UHMI since 2011) qualified meteorologist, begun to work in the laboratory since 2011. His master’s work is connected with CGMS software adaptation for Ukraine. His research interest is complex analysis of datasets derived from satellite-based instruments and application of satellite data in agrometeorology.

taisiaTaisiia Ruban(PhD student) interests include agrometeorological modelling, quantitative remote sensing of crops and operational crop growth monitoring at regional scale and analysis of climate change on agriculture.
