Projects

  • Enviro-Net is a project using wireless sensor networks (WSNs) to monitor physical or environmental conditions in remote and/or hostile natural environments. Enviro-Net augments WSN capability with innovative power-source services and agile software tools in order to enhance research efficiency. Sponsor: CFI
  • Use of image spectroscopy to understand the early signals of mountain pine beetle infestation. Sponsor: Government of Alberta.
  • Tropi-Dry: a collaborative research network to study the human and biophysical dimensions of tropical dry forests in the Americas. Sponsor: Inter-American Institute for Global Change Research (IAI).
  • Tropical Dry Forests: from cell to landscape. Sponsor: National Science and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC).
  • Estimation of oil sand bitumen content and grain size using hyperspectral data. Sponsor: Geoide NCE.
  • Detecting alteration associated with iron ore copper gold (IOCG) mineralization using airborne hyperspectral imaging. Sponsor: Alberta Star.
  • Image understanding applied to river ice. Funding: NSERC Strategic Grant.
  • Sensor Networks for Environmental Monitoring: Development of a domain-oriented framework for the deployment of a large number of wireless sensors. Sponsor: Olsonet Inc.
  • Remote sensing time series and climate change: Use of MODIS and AVHRR time series to evaluate the response of climate change across the Americas using TimeSat. Main collaboration with Lund University TimeSat group.
  • Albert Ground Cover Characterization: Wall to Wall, high-resolution, remote sensing mapping of land cover resources in Alberta. Winner of the Canadian Forestry Service 2006-07 Merit Service Award. Sponsor: Alberta Sustainable Resource Development.
