Professor Geoffrey Henebry of South Dakota State University’s Geospatial Sciences Center for Excellence presented “Remote Sensing of Land Surface Phenologies and Seasonalities Using Hot, Warm, and Cool Earthlight” as the 2015 fall Harold & Florence Mayer Lecture Series on December 4, 2015.
As a Fulbright Senior Research Fellow at the Brazilian Space Agency in 1993-94, Dr. Geoffrey Henebry used imaging radar to investigate flooding patterns in the Pantanal Matogrossense, the largest wetland on the planet. He is a member of NASA’s Land Use Land Cover Change Science Team. Dr. Henebry entered the field of ecological remote sensing while serving as a post-doctoral fellow with the Konza Prairie Long Term Ecological Research project at Kansas State University. He earned a Ph.D. and a M.S., both in Environmental Sciences, from the University of Texas at Dallas, and a B.A. in Liberal Arts from St. John’s College in Santa Fe.
He currently serves on the editorial boards of BioScience, International Journal of Biometeorology, and Landscape Ecology, and previously at Ecology/Ecological Monographs, Conservation Ecology, and Applied Vegetation Science. He is active in the American Geophysical Union (AGU) and the U.S. Chapter of the International Association for Landscape Ecology (US-IALE). Since 2001 Dr. Henebry has been a Certified Senior Ecologist by the Ecological Society of America.
