Geospatial Forum with Dr. Brian Reich – Deep Spatial Learning for Forensic Geolocation with Microbiome Data

February 2 @ 3:30 pm - 4:30 pm
NC United States

Forensic analyses are often concerned with identifying the spatial source of biological residue. Using recent advances in high-throughput sequencing technologies, dust collected from nearly any object can be shown to harbor DNA fragments from thousands of bacteria and fungi species…

Geospatial Forum with Dr. Marc Serre – Incorporating River Distances and Flow in the Geostatistical Estimation of Surface Water Quality in Rivers of North Carolina and Maryland

February 16 @ 3:30 pm - 4:30 pm
NC United States

Assessing water quality along rivers is vital for watershed management. The Bayesian Maximum Entropy method of modern geostatistics provides a powerful framework to model the space/time variability of water quality and perform a statistical assessment of all river miles. This…

Geospatial Forum with Dr. Shaowen Wang – Synergistically Advancing CyberGIS and Geospatial Data Science

March 2 @ 3:30 pm - 4:30 pm
NC United States

CyberGIS represents an interdisciplinary field combining advanced computing and cyberinfrastructure, geographic information science and systems (GIS), spatial analysis and modeling, and a number of geospatial domains (e.g., emergency management, smart cities, and the nexus of food, energy, and water systems) to enable…

Geospatial Forum with Dr. Dar Roberts – Advanced Spectroscopic, Vertical and Thermal Analysis of an Urban Area

March 23 @ 3:30 pm - 4:30 pm
NC United States

As home to more than 50% of the human population, urban areas are of growing importance as sources of airborne and water-borne pollutants and sinks for increasing amounts of energy and natural resources. Remote sensing has considerable potential to improve…

Geospatial Forum with Dr. Sandra Yuter – Spatial Frameworks for Analysis of Clouds and Storms

April 6 @ 3:30 pm - 4:30 pm
NC United States

Deciding upon an appropriate spatial frame of reference is an important component of any observational analysis. Geographically fixed frameworks are not always well suited to meteorology, which can be described as the study of patterns within a moving fluid. Data…

Geospatial Forum with Dr. Emilio Mayorga – Synthesizing River Carbon Fluxes from Streams to the Globe: Needs, Opportunities and Frustrations

April 27 @ 3:30 pm - 4:30 pm
NC United States

The importance of freshwater ecosystems in the terrestrial carbon balance from watersheds to the globe has been increasingly recognized over the last two decades. While global-scale annual carbon exports from rivers to the oceans are reasonably well constrained, large uncertainties…

Geospatial Forum with Dr. Katherine Martin

September 11 @ 12:50 pm - 1:40 pm
Jordan Hall Addition 1216, 2800 Faucette Drive
Raleigh, NC 27695 United States

Humanity has embarked on an age of rapid global changes across biophysical and social-economic conditions so great that it has been labeled the Anthropocene. As global climate changes and urban populations expand, society is increasingly reliant on smaller and more…
