RESEARCH AREAS: Me! I have three main areas of specialization (1) land use land cover change analysis which questions how economic development, accessibility and protected areas impact changes in land cover and land use within specific regions of the world, (2) techniques in remote sensing, where research relates to improved techniques for the analysis and incorporation of remote sensing into geostatistical and modeling studies of land use land cover change and (3) modeling the effects of climate change and changing climate variability on agricultural systems, which asks the question how will climate change impact our existing agricultural regions.

From your text: Maximal definition (not very useful): “remote sensing is the acquiring of data about an object without touching it.”
Background image of page 10
From your text: Minimal definition (much better): “remote sensing is the noncontact recording of information from the ultraviolet, visible, infrared, and microwave regions of the electromagnetic spectrum by means of instruments such as cameras, scanners, lasers, linear arrays, and/or area arrays located on platforms such as aircraft or spacecraft, and the analysis of acquired information by means of visual and digital image processing.”

Some thoughts: We are NOT going to focus on visual interpretations, rather we will focus on digital technologies. Photogrammetry (visual/analog remote sensing) can be learned in Dr. Binford’s course.
