Haifa Tamiminia's thesis focuses on forest biomass estimation using remote sensing data and machine learning techniques using data from ESF's Huntington Wildlife Forest in Newcomb, New York. You can watch Tamiminia's presentation here.
Sarina Adeli is using simulated NASA-ISRO Synthetic Aperture Radar (NISAR) data to classify wetlands. Adeli's research was motivated by a need to slow the rate of loss of marine and estuarine intertidal wetlands. Learn why wetlands are important and more about her research here.
Rabia Khan is using sentinel-2 imagery on Google Earth Engine to monitor water quality over the Finger Lakes region. Khan's presentation can be viewed here.
For some GIS fun, you can test your geography skills with ESRI's Geography Treasure Hunt.
"It's a great way to learn about historic places, unique geological features, and it may be able to help you plan your next vacation," said Jill Rahn, forest resource analyst in the Department of Forest Properties. "
