Earth, The Final Frontier...
The Global Environmental Analysis and Remote Sensing (GEARS) Laboratory, led by Dr. Jonathan A. Greenberg, focuses on addressing questions of the impacts of climate change and land use/land cover change on vegetated ecosystems using remote sensing data. Our research ranges across scales from individual plants to the globe, across many terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems, and utilizes state-of-the-art remote sensing imagery including hyperspectral, hyperspatial, multitemporal, thermal, and LiDAR data, collected from spaceborne, airborne, and terrestrial sensors.
Remote Sensing Science
Enabling Technologies in RS and GIS
To improve the scale and resolution of analyses, and enable the use of more advanced and computationally costly algorithms for remote sensing and GIS analyses.
