LERNZ Post-doctoral Researcher

Dr Mathew Allan has experience integrating ecologically coupled hydrodynamic models of lakes with data generated by satellite remote sensing, with a focus on water quality and water temperature. Mat is currently working on modelling and remote sensing of water quality in the Rotorua lakes region. His research clearly demonstrated for the first time in New Zealand lakes that the application of remote sensing for water quality assessment is able to increase the spatial and temporal resolution of current monitoring techniques, and enable near real-time monitoring of harmful algal blooms and suspended sediment.
