Topic: Climate and Drought in the American Southwest
Speaker: Dr. Lynn Fenstermaker
Dr. Fenstermaker has experience in assessing, mapping, and monitoring the effect of environmental stressors on vegetation at small and large scales using multispectral, hyperspectral and SAR remotely sensed data from ground to satellite based platforms including UAS (unmanned aircraft systems). Recent research has focused on the use of remote sensing to estimate evapotranspiration for riparian and phreatophytic zones, fine scale examination of crop stressors, and wildfire impact on Great Basin and Mojave Desert vegetation.
This event is free and open to the public.
