The lab studies environment through analyses of satellite data and their integration with models of biological, physical and chemical processes. Our interests concern various spatial scales: from the whole Earth system to individual agricultural fields.
Currently we are working on these projects:
- The extent of eastern Andean tree line over the last 30 years – a global analysis in the context of Amazonia’s climate adaptation. 2015 – 2018, NCN (Sonata)
- LandCor – software for atmospheric correction of optical satellite data (Landsat / Sentinel 2)
- A global set of local climate change characteristics based on database of Global Circulation Models’ runs, CMIP5 – a pattern-scaling dataset for the weather and climate simulator IMOGEN (Integrated Model Of Global Effects of climatic aNomalies)
- Satellite data analysis in support of evolutionary biology research (in collaboration with the Wild Urban Evolution and Ecology Lab)
- Technical support for the SatAgro project (an Internet service for an ongoing satellite monitoring of individual agricultural fields)

Dr Przemysław Żelazowski is an assistant professor at the Centre of New Technologies (CeNT), University of Warsaw. His interests are interdisciplinary and focus on relations between lants (forests, crops) and their environment, also in the context of the whole Earth system. He also specialises in satellite remote sensing. In 2010 he defended a doctorate at the University of Oxford (Environmental Change Institute). He also holds an MSc degree in Environmental Change and Management (ECI, Oxford), and an Interdisciplinary MSc degree in Environmental Protection from the University of Warsaw. Before CeNT he worked for the Met Office Hadley Centre, FAO UN, and Centre for Space Research of the Polish Academy of Sciences. Dr Zelazowski is also a founder and CEO of SatAgro (a satellite monitoring service for individual farms) and GeoPulse (University of Warsaw’s spin-off; crop monitoring at regional scale).
