Prof Baret received a PhD in 1986 on the application of remote sensing to agriculture. Since then, he has been working at the National Institute of Agronomical Research, focusing on radiative transfer modelling in the solar domain, estimation of canopy and soil characteristics from radiometric observations, and assimilating these data into canopy functioning models. He was heavily involved in the preparation of several satellite missions. He has also coordinated large experiments such as Alpilles-ReSeDA, ADAM, and was in charge of the VALERI and CYCLOPES European projects for the development and validation of medium resolution satellite products. He has also chaired the CEOS/Land Product Validation group. He is still deeply involved in the development of biophysical products from a range of sensors from decametric to kilometric resolutions, with emphasis on precision, accuracy, and temporal continuity within the GEOLAND2 European project.


Recently he has become involved in close range remote sensing techniques with application to high throughput phenotyping through PHENOBLE, BREEDWHEAT and PHENOME projects. This uses both UAVs as well as robotic vehicles with functional imaging capabilities along with 3D models to describe the detailed canopy architecture and its dynamics along the growth cycle. He has authored more than 210 peer reviewed international journal articles, more than 40 in the last five years, which are highly cited, with index h=48 (Web of science) or h = 121 (Google Scholar) and is a member of the editorial board of Remote Sensing of the Environment journal (IF=4.6). More recently, he has joined the scientific advisory committee of the AKER project (sugar-beet phenotyping) and is participating in the executive committee of the PHENOME project, and the French Plant Phenotyping Network.
