A summary of work, and some preliminary findings from terrestrial and airborne remote sensing acquisitions characterizing structural changes in mangrove ecosystems in Florida, conducted in response to hurricane Irma. Initial results from Goddard's Lidar, Hyperspectral and Thermal (GLiHT) airborne instrument package, the Compact Biomass Lidar (CBL) terrestrial laser scanner, and the 3D Photogrammetry system TR33S will be presented. The intention of this short presentation is to encourage discussion and sharing of other work being conducted in the wake of the historic 2017 hurricane season.
Ian assists Dr. Bruce Cook with the application of data from Goddard's Lidar, Hyperspectral and Thermal (GLiHT) airborne instrument package to ecological questions, and also works with terrestrial lidar data. He was previously a student at the University of Massachusetts, Boston under Dr. Crystal Schaaf.
