Activity Description

Educational Materials

2002  

  • "Fundamentals of Remote Sensing and Airphoto Interpretation"

    This book, published by Graydon Lennis L. Berlin and Thomas Eugene Avery, Prentice Hall Publishers, 6th Edition, contains contributions of this science team on modeling and remote sensing research.

2004  

  • LAB Materials for Remote Sensing Short Course

    Drs. Dar Roberts (UCSB) and Carlos Moreira de Souza Jr.(IMAZON) developed lab materials for remote sensing short courses.

    General topics include:

    • Remote Sensing background
    • Examples of Land-Cover Change
    • Mixture Models
    • Decision Tree Classifiers

Internship and Exchange Programs

2001  

  • Training of IMAZON scientist at UCSB

    The IMAZON scientist, André Monteiro, visited the University of California-Santa Barbara for a six-month training in image processing techniques designed to provide reflectance retrievals, spectral mixture analysis with reference end member selection, land-cover mapping and decision tree classifiers.

2004  

  • INPE's scientists visit UCSB

    At the end of January 2004, Dr. Camilo Dalales Renno and Dr. Joao Vianei Soares visited the University of California-Santa Barbara.

    The main goal was to begin an analysis in which a distributed hydrological model, developed by Dr. Renno, will be used to estimate the impacts of land-cover change on evapotranspiration and run-off in a pair of water sheds. The primary objective was to select paired watersheds in Rondônia (one cleared, one relatively pristine), which include extensive historical remote sensing time series and meet model requirements (extent feasible with high quality stream gauge data for calibration/validation, soils etc).

    The group also discussed plans for additional data layers, such as seasonal LAI derived from MODIS time series.

Outreach to North America/Europe

2003  

  • Brazil, land of many habitats and peoples

    Lecture presented by Dr. Roberts to 7th grade students as part of the activities of the 2003 National Geography Awareness Week, held in Denver, Colorado, USA.

Short Courses / Seminars / Workshops / Conferences

   

  • Large Area Mapping in Rondônia using Multitemporal Sectral Mixture Analysis and Decision Tree Classifiers

    Lecture presented at the University of California-Irvine, Nov. 4, 2001.

2003  

  • Hyperspectral Remote Sensing Course

    This two-day course was taught by Dr. Dar Roberts in collaboration with Dr. Robert Green at the SBIR IX in Belo Horizonte, Brazil.

2004  

  • Remote Sensing Course and Lab Materials

    Dr. Roberts (UCSB) and Souza (IMAZON) designed a remote sensing short course, including software demonstrations and lab materials addressed to Graduate students.

    General topics include:

    • Remote Sensing Background
    • Examples of Land-Cover Change
    • Mixture Models
    • Decision Tree Classifiers
    • ENVI Demonstrations

Theses and Dissertations

2003  

  • Impacts of regional deforestation on stream biogeochemistry in the Brazilian Amazon Basin

    Doctoral dissertation completed by Trent W. Biggs at the University of California-Santa Barbara, USA.

  • Regional Effects of Deforestation on Soil Biogeochemistry in the Southwestern Amazon

    Doctoral dissertation completed by Karen W. Holmes at the University of California-Santa Barbara.
