报告题目Remote Sensing of Vegetation Function and Structure with Some Interesting Side Stories   
  Professor Nicholas Coops       
报告时间:2011年9月15日(星期四)下午2:30  
    点:蒙民伟楼913     
Dr. Coops is a faculty member in the Department of Forest Resources Management at UBC, and holds a Canada Research Chair (CRC) in remote sensing. Nicholas obtained his PhD from the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology in Melbourne Australia, and then worked at CSIRO, the Australian government research labs, for 10 year prior to coming to UBC in 2004. He is the chief editor of Canadian Journal of Remote Sensing. 
Nicholas’ research focuses on the application of remote sensing imagery to the monitoring and mapping of forest and vegetation health and productivity. 
内容介绍:  
In his talk he will discuss some underlying relationships between vegetation functioning and leaf reflectance which is allowing remote sensing to provide continuous data into carbon models of vegetation production. He will discuss this work in the context of regional and national level forest management, where these models can provide critical information on vegetation responses to changes in climate. Dr Coops will also provide a general overview of other research in his lab, such as LIDAR applications in forestry and urban environments, as well as briefly summarize his editorial experiences as Editor-in-Chief of the Canadian Journal of Remote Sensing (CJRS), and provide some general tips for successful publication.
