2012年6月13号上午10:00-11:30,印第安纳州立大学Qihao Weng 教授来我所做了题为“Recent Advances in Remote Sensing of Urban Heat Islands”的学术报告。 Dr. Qihao Weng is the Director of the Center for Urban and Environmental Change and a Full Professor of geography at Indiana State University, USA. He was a visiting NASA senior fellow in 2009. Dr. Weng is also a guest/adjunct professor at several Chinese universities including Peking University, Wuhan University and Beijing Normal University, and a guest research scientist at
Beijing Meteorological Bureau, China. He received a Ph.D. in geography from the University of Georgia in 1999. At the same year, he joined the University of Alabama as an assistant professor. Since 2001, he has been a member of the faculty in the Department of Earth and Environmental Systems at Indiana State University, where he teaches courses on remote sensing, GIS, remote sensing-GIS integration, and environmental modeling, and has mentored 10 doctoral and 8 master students. Dr. Weng has worked extensively with optical, thermal infrared and LiDAR data, primarily for urban heat island study, land-cover and impervious surface mapping, urbanization analysis, image analysis algorithms, and the integration with socioeconomic characteristics, with financial support from US funding agencies that include NSF, NASA, USGS, USAID, National Geographic Society, NOA
A, and Indiana Dept of Natural Resources. Dr. Weng is the author of over 130 peer-reviewed journal articles and other publications and five books (Urban Remote Sensing; Remote Sensing of Impervious Surfaces; Remote Sensing and GIS Integration; Advances in Environmental Remote Sensing, and Introduction to Contemporary Remote Sensing). Dr. Weng was the recipient of the Robert E. Altenhofen Memorial Scholarship Award by the American Society for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing (1999), the Best Student-Authored Paper Award by the International Geographic Information Foundation (1998), the 2010 Erdas Award for Best Scientific Paper in Remote Sensing by ASPRS (1st place), and the Outstanding Contributions Award in Remote Sensing in 2011 sponsored by American Association of Geographers (AAG) Remote Sensing Specialty Group. At Indiana State University, he received the Theodore Dreiser Distinguished Research Award in 2006, the university’s highest research honor bestowed to its faculty. In May 2008, he received a prestigious NASA senior fellowship. Dr. Weng has given 70 invited talks in different countries (including colloquia, seminars, keynote address and public speech), and has presented over 100 papers at professional conferences (including co-presenting). Dr. Weng is leading an international team of researchers and practitioners to develop a Global Urban Observation and Information Task for GEO (Group on Earth Observations), 2012-2015. He previously served as a National Director of American Society for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing (2007-2010), the Chair of AAG China Geography Specialty Group (2010-2011), and the Secretary of ISPRS Working Group VIII/1 (2004-08). Other important activities include serving as a member of U.S. DOE’s Cool Roofs Roadmap and Strategy review panel in 2010 and a review panelist for U.S. EPA watershed management software. In
addition, Dr. Weng serves as an Associate Editor of ISPRS Journal of Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing, an Associate Editor-in-Chief of Spatial Hydrology, and is the series editor for both Taylor & Francis Series in Remote Sensing Applications, and McGraw-Hill Series in GIS&T.
