Laba, Magdeline

Positions

Magdeline Laba's long term interests emphasize the integration of remote sensing science and technology, geospatial data and field sampling methods to address agronomic and natural resource management issues.

research overview

  • My research program focuses on the spatial, spectral, radiometric, and temporal properties of remotely-sensed data to determine how to appropriately use such data to inventory and monitor natural resources, as well as to improve agricultural and environmental management and inform policy. My work focuses on the scale and resolution of the products generated from remotely-sensed data and the relationships between these products, environmental characteristics, and ecosystem processes. My program has a growing focus on the impacts of climate change and sea level rise on wetland plant communities and the ecosystem services they provide.
