Geospatial Science: Remote Sensing and GIS
Dr. Knight's research focuses on using geospatial science methods such as remote sensing and GIS to understand and quantify the impacts of land use on our environment and natural resources. The improved understanding provided by this research of the dynamics of land use effects on Earth’s ecosystems allows us to address more effectively current challenges such as climate change, deforestation, and loss of wetlands; and to develop and implement sustainable land use practices to avoid future environmental problems.
