Associate Director for Spatial Analysis for the University of Oklahoma to Speak at BENG Colloquium
The Biological Engineering colloquium, titled "Satellite-based monitoring and modeling of water-related land surface dynamics," will feature Xiangming Xiao, associate director for spatial analysis at the University of Oklahoma. It will be from 10:45-11:45 a.m. Friday, Sept. 15, in ENGR room 219.
Water-related land cover types include open surface water body (e.g., rivers, lakes, reservoirs, streams, ponds), natural wetlands (inland and coastal wetlands), and man-made wetlands such as paddy rice croplands. They are important natural resources and provide essential ecosystem goods and services to the human society.
In this seminar, Xiao will introduce his recent research activities in using satellite image to map and monitor water-related land surface dynamics in various parts of the world. He also introduced a couple case studies that incorporate the resultant geospatial datasets of water-related land cover types for the studies of food production and security as well as zoonotic infectious diseases.
