How open access to the Landsat archive is changing how we map and monitor ecosystem dynamics: Case studies from Southern New England

February 7, 2018 - 3:00pm

Valerie Pasquarella is a NE CSC Postdoctoral Fellow at UMass Amherst in the Department of Environmental Conservation.  Val is a spatial data scientist working at the intersection of remote sensing and ecology.  Her current research seeks to utilize dense time series of Landsat observations to characterize impacts of both invasive species and climate on ecosystem condition, with the goal of advancing our understanding of how various agents, processes and constraints influence both seasonal and long-term dynamics of landscapes in the Northeast.

Managing Floodplain Expectations on the Missouri River

March 7, 2018 - 3:30pm

The project “Science to Inform Management of Floodplain Conservation Lands under Non-Stationary Conditions” has been focused on understanding how large-river floodplains can be managed more effectively. The first part of the project developed management priorities and information needs based on input from managers of floodplain conservation lands along parts of the Mississippi and Missouri rivers (Bouska and others, 2016). The overwhelming priority that emerged from this process was the need to better understand floodplain inundation patterns.

Quantifying variability in fish populations due to climate change and implications for management

April 11, 2018 - 3:30pm

The number of fish collected in routine monitoring surveys often varies from year to year, from lake to lake, and from location to location within a lake. Although some variability in fish catches is expected across factors such as location and season, we know less about how large‐scale disturbances like climate change will influence population variability.
