Multispectral Remote Sensing

 

Our multispectral remote sensing projects include:


 

Mountain Pine Beetle

Yellowstone Ecoregion Mountain Pine Beetle project A range of wood-boring beetles (including the mountain pine beetle) have affected broad areas of the Rocky Mountains over the past two decades. These infestations are unprecedented in historical times, and correspond to a … Continue reading

Iceland – Lake Myvatn – Lake to Land Fluxes

Nutrients are exchanged between ecosystems in many ways. The direction and magnitude of fluxes across the landscape can dramatically influence ecosystem processes. In Lake Myvatn in northern Iceland, an abundance of midges (in Icelandic, ‘my’ is midge, and ‘vatn’ is lake) … Continue reading

Snapshot Wisconsin

Wildlife management agencies are tasked with balancing problems of wildlife overabundance (e.g. damage to agriculture, nuisance) with problems of scarcity (e.g. risk of extinction, loss of ecosystem services) and citizens’ desires for hunting opportunities, wildlife viewing, and other wildlife-associated values. … Continue reading

Forest disturbance

We can observe and describe forest disturbances in a number of ways using satellite imagery, airborne observations, and field measurements. Our work in Upper Midwest and Great Lakes forests considers numerous disturbance types: severe storm winds, insect defoliation, fire, and … Continue reading
