Monitoring Forest Disturbance from Space

Climate Science, Ecology, Plant Biology, Statistics

How will climate change and human activity transform western US forests? Increasing wildfires/droughts/insect attack/and land use are threatening these ecosystems/and space technology can be used to track these dynamics at large scales. Join this stream to learn about remote sensing/fire and forest ecology/machine learning/and image analysis - including potential opportunities for field work/drone flights/and coding/programming. We will build a machine learning approach for tracking forest health and disturbance by analyzing imagery from satellites/airplanes/and drones.
