Research assistantship available in remote sensing analysis

Graduate Research Assistant or Project Assistant, Remote Sensing of Urban and Peri-Urban Expansion

The Land Cover Change Lab at the Center for Sustainability and the Global Environment (SAGE) has funding for one RA or PA position starting this fall, and continuing through spring and summer, 2015, to conduct research to monitor urban expansion and agricultural land loss across East-Southeast Asia using multiple remote sensing data sets.

The overall goal of the project is to monitor land cover change, and work will be completed using a combination of ENVI, ArcGIS, and command line programming tools.  The student will focus on analysis of time series MODIS satellite data to understand global trends in urban expansion.  For more information, please click here.
