Dr. Guy Schumann is the CEO and Principal Scientist at RSS-Hydro Sarl-S and also a Principal Scientist at Remote Sensing Solutions, Inc. Dr. Schumann is currently also a Visiting Research Fellow at Geographical Sciences, University of Bristol and an affiliate at the Dartmouth Flood Observatory (DFO), INSTAAR at the University of Colorado Boulder, CO. He received both the M.Sc.(Remote Sensing) and Ph.D. (Geography) degrees from the University of Dundee (UK). Dr. Schumann has around 15 years of experience in the field of remote sensing data integration with hydrodynamic modeling and particularly radar remote sensing and its use in flood models. Most of his current work and projects are research projects focusing on simulating river hydrodynamics and floodplain inundation. Dr Schumann is also involved in the Interoperability Program activities of the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) and is spearheading an international initiative to create a global high-accuracy, open-access digital elevation model.

Research Interests: flood hydrology; remote sensing; radar; hydrodynamic modeling; flood disaster; digital elevation model.
