Joshua Gray

Associate Professor

Mapping a Dynamic Planet, Land Use and Vegetation Dynamics

Forestry and Environmental Resources


Josh uses geospatial analytics to understand how land use and vegetation dynamics interact with the climate system to produce changes in water and carbon cycles, particularly in managed lands like croplands and timber plantations. He develops remote sensing algorithms that blend imagery from multiple Earth-orbiting satellites to improve time series datasets for studies of phenological change. His interests also include remote sensing with Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) and big-data geocomputation.

Josh’s research includes using Kalman Filters to merge MODIS and Landsat data, producing more informative datasets for understanding phenological change in managed landscapes.
