Learning Exchange Series: Remote Sensing Technology for Improved Forest Carbon Inventorying
April 5, 2023 3:00PM - 4:00PM
Remote Sensing Technology for Improved Forest Carbon Inventorying
- Monika Moskal, Professor, School of Environmental & Forest Sciences, University of Washington
- Prof. Moskal specializes in Remote Sensing and Earth Observation at the School of Environmental and Forest Sciences (SEFS), within the College of the Environment, at the University of Washington, Seattle and serves as the Director of the Precision Forestry Cooperative (PFC), which also houses her Remote Sensing and Geospatial Analysis Laboratory (RSGAL). She is affiliated with the UW Interdisciplinary PhD Program and the UW Department of Geography. Prof. Moskal earned a PhD in Remote Sensing and GIS from the University of Kansas, Masters in Remote Sensing from the University of Calgary and Bachelors of Environmental Sciences from the University of Waterloo. Prof. Moskal has worked throughout the western U.S. and Canada, and her research has received substantial funding from the NSF, USDA Forest Service, as well as NASA.
Dr. Monika Moskal will present on her research linking forest and wetland carbon through remote sensing, using methods necessary to analyze hyper-resolution remotely sensed data by exploiting spatial, temporal and spectral domains of the data. She will discuss how this work increases the understanding of multiscale and multidimensional dynamics of landscapes, and aids in forest carbon inventorying.
Registration for this session will remain open until the date of the webinar, April 5th, 2023. Click below to register for this session.
