About

I studied Astronomy in a 4-years 1st degree (FCUP-UP, 1998) followed by a master degree in computational methods (FEUP-UP, 2000) and a PhD in Surveying Engineering (UP, 2006) [Thesis: Sea level change in the North Atlantic from tide gauges and satellite altimetry]. After a postdoc in Israel where I worked on the analysis of radon time series I became interested on the use of radon gas as a geophysical proxy and as a tracer of dynamic processes in the Earth's system.

I edited a book on "Nonlinear Time Series Analysis in the Geosciences - Applications in Climatology, Geodynamics and Solar-Terrestrial Physics", and 3 topical volumes. I'm the author of 3 book chapters and 50 papers in international peer-reviewed journals.

 

My research is highly interdisciplinary, with a strong emphasis on data science, particularly time series analysis of environmental data. I have expertise on the analysis of climate records and satellite data, focusing on the assessment and quantification of climate change (trends, changes in seasonality, extremes). I have also experience on the field monitoring of environmental radioactivity (in soil, air and water) and on the analysis and interpretation of radiation variability in the context of Sun-Earth interactions as well as interactions between the different sub-components of the Earth's system.

Abstract
The atmospheric electric field is a key characteristic of the Earth system. Despite its relevance, oceanic measurements of the atmospheric electric field are scarce, as typically oceanic measurements tend to be focused on ocean properties rather than on the atmosphere above. This motivated the set-up of an innovative campaign on board the sail ship NRP Sagres focused on the measurement of the atmospheric electric field in the marine boundary layer. This paper describes the monitoring system that was developed to measure the atmospheric electric field during the planned circumnavigation expedition of the sail ship NRP Sagres. © 2022 IEEE.
