Graduate research assistantships are available at the School of Forest Resources in the area of Remote Sensing with a particular focus on forest health to support highly qualified MS/Ph.D. students to start in Spring 2020, Fall 2020 or as soon as possible. The research will be part of a large recently funded NASA project and is focused on developing solutions for current forest health and disturbance issues in the Northeast forests of USA. In collaboration with NASA and USDA scientists the project involves field campaigns and using multi-scale aerial and satellite multispectral /hyperspectral sensors and data applications and modeling. The project provides excellent opportunities to conduct cutting-edge research in a multidisciplinary environment led by several experienced UMaine scientists and faculty.
