Dr Minseok Kang
Senior Research Scientist
National Center for AgroMeteorology

Increasing fire resistance in needleleaf forests through mixing with broadleaved trees

1:30 PM - 1:45 PM

Abstract

Biography

He is a senior research scientist at the National Center For AgroMeteorology, South Korea. He has been building a research career based on the eddy covariance flux measurement technique for surface greenhouse gas emissions at a landscape scale, which is essential in the carbon-neutral era for coping with climate change. He has been working on operating the eddy covariance flux monitoring network covering various agricultural and forest lands in Korea with his colleagues. He has been serving local, regional, and global flux communities, i.e., KoFlux, AsiaFlux, and FLUXNET as a lead scientist, vice chair, and community council member, respectively.

Exploring the Effects and Resilience of Subtropical Montane Cloud Forests to Seasonal Droughts and Typhoon disturbances through Multiple-scale Analysis

2:30 PM - 2:45 PM

Abstract

Biography

Dr. Wang's research integrates various advanced remote sensing techniques into her multifaceted research. Her work encompasses vegetation dynamics and its response to climate, employing advanced remote sensing methods for time series analysis and spatio-temporal analysis to track land surface vegetation changes across diverse temporal and spatial scales. Furthermore, Dr. Wang investigates the carbon cycle and stock of forest ecosystems, utilizing a fusion of field data and satellite imagery to map litterfall in tropical/subtropical forests in Taiwan. Additionally, her research extends to examining landslide-biomass loss through multi-sensored remote sensing techniques, enhancing understanding of ecosystem dynamics. Recently, her research has focused on subtropical montane cloud forests' resilience to seasonal droughts and typhoon disturbances, revealing heightened vulnerability to drought over typhoons. Despite an observed upward trend in resilience, uncertainties persist regarding future ecosystem responses to intensified extreme events.
Dr Jody Vogeler
Research Scientist
Colorado State University

Evaluation of Forest Structure products for Characterizing Post-disturbance Landscapes and Green Tree Refugia

2:45 PM - 3:00 PM

Abstract

Biography

Dr. Jody Vogeler is a Research Scientist with the Natural Resources Ecology Laboratory at Colorado State University. Dr. Vogeler's research program aims to advance our understanding of ecosystem dynamics under changing climates and land use patterns using novel remote sensing data fusions and big data analytical approaches across national and international study regions. Her lab specializes in integrating remote sensing data sets with field surveys and other reference data focusing on the intersection of wildlife habitat ecology, carbon dynamics, and human-environmental interactions within changing forest and woodland systems. Within all of their projects, the Vogeler Research Lab works closely with end-user partners to guide development of research goals and spatial decision support tools to contribute to sustainable management planning.
