Research program

Our lines of research seek conceptual and methodological contributions in the way ecosystem processes are mapped, studied and monitored. 


High-resolution mapping: we investigate techniques for fine resolution mapping of plants and animal habitats at local to landscape scales.

Trends in ecological change: using dense time series of remotely sensed data, we investigate spatiotemporal trends in ecological change.

Operationalization of monitoring systems: we propose advancing the science and technology behind the operationalization of effective ecosystem monitoring systems. 

Lubbock's Greenness Observatory​: this project aims to quantify and monitor remotely-sensed ecological variables in the Lubbock area and connect the information to decision-makers in natural resource management, urban development and design.
