Remote Sensing in the Geology and Geography Department at WVU
Remote sensing is an exciting field of study, especially with the current interest in lidar, high spatial resolution imagery, and object-oriented analysis. In the Department of Geology and Geography at WVU, remote sensing is part of a core emphasis on Geographic Information Science (GISc).
My research interests include the spatial properties of remotely sensed images, lidar, high spatial resolution imagery, thermal imagery, biogeographical applications of remote sensing (especially the study of the invasive species, Ailanthus altissima) and information literacy.
My students are working on:
Recently the Cooperative Ecosystems Studies Units (CESU) highlighted training in remote sensing that I periodically help provide to the US Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS).
