Humans, as the only dominant species on Earth, have been changing the Earth's surface throughout its existence, which has greatly threatened the sustainability, biodiversity, and ecosystems of the Earth. Satellite remote sensing is one of the most powerful tools for observing the Earth’s surface because of its repeated synoptic collection of consistent measurements. The central theme of this talk is to use quantitative remote sensing methods to better understand how the world is changing based on time series of optical satellite data acquired during daytime and nighttime. Dr. Zhu will introduce and discuss the progress and findings of some of his current projects which study land disturbance, tidal wetland change, forest disturbance, beetle infestation, understory habitat mapping, and human activity changes.
