Peter is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Natural Resource Ecology and Management at Iowa State University. His broad interests include forest ecosystem monitoring using satellite remote sensing technology. Currently he is investigating the use of airborne lidar data to calibrate satellite-based forest structure estimation models that presently rely on ground-based measurement data. The aim is to be able to accurately and efficiently monitor forest biophysical parameters using readily available data sources, and provide a framework for semi-automated, periodic updates to track forest structural changes and associated impacts on ecosystem biodiversity.
