FACULTY SPOTLIGHT

Dax Soul,

Assistant Professor Seismologist of School of Earth and Environmental Sciences Queens College, CUNY

provides expert commentary for CBSNewYork on aftershocks from Friday’s Northeast earthquake

 

 

“While aftershocks are a concern for this first 24, 36, 72-hour period out to about a week, the entire East Coast is a seismically active area. But most of the earthquakes are relatively small,” said Dax Soule, a seismologist and assistant professor at Queens College.

Colloquium

Wenge Ni-Meister, PhD

Professor, Department of Geography and Environmental Science, Hunter College of The City University of New York

“Leveraging NASA’s Global Ecosystem Dynamics Investigation (GEDI) Lidar Mission Measurements for Large-Scale Aboveground Biomass Estimation”

Lidar technology has improved our understanding of the distribution and amount of terrestrial above-ground biomass density (AGBD). Recent advancements in satellite lidar, such as the full waveform-based Global Ecosystem Dynamics Investigation (GEDI) lidar, have enabled global forest biomass and structure mapping. In this talk, I will present an innovative method to estimating aboveground biomass density (AGBD) from the Global Ecosystem Dynamics Investigation (GEDI) mission measurements. I will discuss the advantages of our approach and discuss the model performance in temperate forests in the northeastern U.S., montane forests in the western U.S., and tropical forests in central Africa. I will showcase the model’s capability to estimate aboveground biomass on continental US (CONUS) and the approach we are taking to use it at the global scale.
