|Dennis G. Dye |
|Project Skills: ||Ecosystem Science - Remote sensing-based modeling of terrestrial ecosystem processes (primary production, ecosystem- atmosphere carbon exchange); In situ and satellite-based monitoring of photosynthetically active radiation, vegetation phenology, and vegetation- climate relations.|
| Climate Change - Satellite-based analysis of interannual snow-cover dynamics, photosynthetically active radiation, and vegetation-climate relations.|
| Land Use/Land Cover Studies - Satellite-based modeling and analysis of the effects of land cover change on the terrestrial carbon budget.|
| Remote Sensing - Analysis of vegetation biophysical properties and dynamics with time-series, multispectral satellite observations; Sensor development for ground-based measurement of photosynthetically active radiation. International collaboration and capacity building in remote sensing of terrestrial vegetation and ecosystem carbon dynamics. During 2008-2012 serves as Secretary for Working Group 8 (Land) of Commission VIII (Remote Sensing Applications and Policies) of the International Society for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing (ISPRS).|
|Geographic Regions: ||North America, East and Southeast Asia, Northern Eurasia, boreal forest, tropical forest.|
|Collaborations: ||Various international research collaborations with groups in East Asia (Japan) and Southeast Asia (Thailand, Indonesia). Prior to joining USGS, employed in Japan as Senior Scientist and Group Leader with the Ecosystem Change Research Program of the JAMSTEC Frontier Research Center for Global Change. During 2008-2012, serves as Secretary for Working Group 8 (Land) of Commission VIII (Remote Sensing Applications and Policies) of the International Society for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing (ISPRS).|
