On Tuesday, March 2, 2010, Dr. David Goodenough of the University of Victoria will present "Methods and Systems for Applications" as part of the continuing Distinguished Lecture Series sponsored the IEEE-Geographic remote sensing Society. Dr. Goodenough is an Adjunct Professor of Computer Science, Faculty of Engineering, at the University of Victoria.

Abstract: Methods and Systems for Applications
In order to monitor the resources and environment of the planet, it is necessary to use remote sensing from multiple sensors and integrate these data with historical information contained within geographical information systems (GIS). Multiple sensors are required to identify attributes of interest. In forestry, resource managers want to know the amount of the resource by species, area, timber volume, etc., the spatial distribution, the health (chemistry) of the forests, and the temporal changes of the resource, both past and predicted for the future. The technologies of the IEEE Geoscience and Remote Sensing Society are used to create information systems to support resource and environmental management. In this presentation we describe hyperspectral and radar methods and systems to obtain valuable forest information, such as chemistry, above-ground carbon, species, and biomass
