Geospatial Forum with Dr. Peter Ojiambo (NC State)

January 27 @ 3:30 pm - 4:30 pm

Cucurbit downy mildew exhibits significant long distance dispersal within the continental United States. The disease is characterized by annual extinction and recolonization cycles that make it an excellent model system to understand and quantify epidemic expansion in both time and space. Using disease records collected as part of a cucurbit downy mildew monitoring system, the temporal and spatial extent of the disease in the US has been established. Further, the risk of disease outbreak in the eastern US has been…

Geospatial Forum with Dr. Antonia Sebastian (UNC-Chapel Hill)

February 10 @ 3:30 pm - 4:30 pm

Insured flood loss in Texas has risen rapidly since 1978, totaling nearly $16.4 billion USD by the end of 2021. These losses have been predominantly concentrated in coastal and urban areas where changes in extreme precipitation coupled with rapid population growth at the coastal margin and in upland areas have dramatically altered the hydrologic response of local catchments. This forum presentation will highlight recent findings from urban flood studies in the Houston-Galveston region with a specific emphasis on attributing changes…

Geospatial Forum with Dr. Brian Miller (USGS)

February 24 @ 3:30 pm - 4:30 pm

Managing natural resources is fraught with uncertainty around how complex ecosystems will respond to management actions and a changing climate. A range of scientific tools can help grapple with different aspects of this challenge, but they are often used independently. This forum presentation describes a series of projects that have leveraged the complementary strengths of participatory scenario planning and various ecological modeling approaches to develop management-relevant information. By using these tools in combination and grounding them in management priorities, it…

Geospatial Forum with Dr. Leila Hashemi-Beni (NC A&T State Univ.)

March 24 @ 3:30 pm - 4:30 pm

The increasing volume and diversity of sources of geospatial data have created both opportunities and challenges for environmental management studies. Combining and extracting the information contained in these rich multisource data enable novel views and the development of a comprehensive and detailed knowledge basis of the environmental dynamics of both rapidly changing events (e.g. floods) and steady progressions (e.g., crop growth or erosion monitoring). This forum presentation will discuss geospatial data-driven approaches for environmental studies. The approaches are new ways…

April 2022

Geospatial Forum with Dr. Zhe Zhu (Univ. of Connecticut)

April 7 @ 3:30 pm - 4:30 pm

The discipline of land change science has been evolving rapidly in the past decades. Remote sensing has played a major role in one of the most critical components of land change science, which includes observation, monitoring, and characterization of land change. In this forum presentation, Dr. Zhu will first introduce a new remote sensing perspective on land change -- the multifaceted view -- and the corresponding five facets including change location, time, target, process, and agent. Finally, Dr. Zhu will…
