My long-term projects focus on biophysical/bioenvironmental geography and disturbance. I use remote sensing and spatial information systems to understand processes producing natural spatial patterns, and the effects of disturbance on these processes and patterns. This work involves biophysical characterization of status and change in vegetation systems, using passive and active remote sensors, spatial statistics and simulation modeling, examining the basis for and geographic implications of changes in these systems.
