The research group on Land Use Change & Climate at Karlsruhe Institute of Technology’s Campus Alpin (IMK-IFU) located in Garmisch-Partenkirchen, in collaboration with the Laboratory for Geoinformation Science and Remote Sensing at Wageningen University, is currently looking for a PhD candidate in historic land cover/use change and aboveground biomass modelling.
The objectives of a recent study published in Sustainability were to analyse how the challenging approach of TDR is currently adopted and implemented in the field of land-use research and to identify potential influencing factors.
The Department of Geography and Environmental Systems at the University of Maryland Baltimore County invites outstanding applicants to apply for their Environment and Society Fellowship.
The Yale School of Forestry and Environmental Studies (FES) is offering 5 years of guaranteed funding for their PhD program on any aspect of the environment.
The Department of Environmental Science, Policy, and Management (ESPM) in the College of Natural Resources at the University of California, Berkeley invites applications for a tenure-track position at the assistant professor level in Quantitative Environmental Remote Sensing with an expected start date of July 1, 2018.
The ESA Climate Change Initiative (CCI) Land Cover team have developed a map based on 1 year of Sentinel-2A observations from December 2015 to December 2016.
Applications are invited for a 2-year Postdoctoral Research Associate position as part of a newly NASA-funded interdisciplinary project titled “The Global Land Rush: A Socio-Environmental Synthesis." This project will conduct an integrated global synthesis of large-scale land acquisitions (LSLAs), a growing phenomenon in the global South as governments and transnational investors seek to secure access to land in developing countries to produce food, bio-fuels, and non-agricultural commodities. Start date is June 1, 2018 (or earlier).
GLP Member Laura Sonter found mining significantly increased Amazon forest loss up to 70 km beyond mining lease boundaries, causing 11,670 km2 of deforestation between 2005 and 2015. This extent represents 9% of all Amazon forest loss during this time and 12 times more deforestation than occurred within mining leases alone.
Land changes studied at a variety of scales, both in space and time, will be presented in an attempt to explore the role of analytical tools and technologies in understanding changing landscapes. Priorities include novel techniques for quantifying and analyzing land change with the use of old and new remote sensors.
