Greg Asner Colloquium Abstract (Jan 25, 2017)

Exploring and Managing Forests from Above

Human activities are rapidly changing the biosphere, calling for innovative ways to measure, monitor and manage ecosystems at large geographic scales. Fortunately, the science and technology landscape is also evolving fast to meet the challenge of better managing the biosphere in the coming decades. In this lecture, I will explain an advanced Earth mapping project called the Carnegie Airborne Observatory, and how we are using it to explore and conserve forests undergoing land use and climate change.
