Remote Sensing/GIS/Visualization

Earth and Ecosystem science faculty include a number of people using remote sensing and GIS to address a wide range of environmental questions and, as a result, work across all divisions at DRI. These questions include changes in vegetation, hydrology, and land use in response to environmental change and land use, detection of potential locations for exploration of geothermal energy, dating of ice cores, and detection of buried improvised explosive devices (IED’s). To conduct this research scientists use a wide range of state-of-the-art techniques including Light Detection and Ranging (LiDAR), field spectrometers, and satellite images often in combination with advanced 3-D visualization techniques.
