January 5th, 2017 in 2017, Curtis Woodcock, Faculty, Graduate students, Jan-17, Mark Friedl, Meeting, News, Pontus Olofsson, Presentations, Researchers

The Landsat Science Team will meet at Boston University from January 10-12. The meeting is hosted
by Professors Woodcock, Friedl, and Olofsson and will focus on many issues related to the Landsat Program, including:

  1. Identify priorities for future Landsat measurements and technologies
  2. Review status of Landsat 9 development
  3. Review plans and status of USGS Landsat product initiatives – collections and analysis-ready data

The meeting will also include an opportunity for many of the Department’s students and researchers to present their work that is relevant to the Landsat Program.

William Nardin, currently a postdoc at BU, has joined the faculty at the University of Maryland as assistant professor. During his PhD William worked at BU on delta morphodynamics with associate professor Sergio Fagherazzi’s research group. During his first postdoc, he worked on mangrove dynamics in the Mekong Delta in Vietnam with Professors Fagherazzi and Curtis Woodcock. He is currently part of the NSF National Center for Earth-Surface Dynamics 2 Synthesis Postdoc program with UC Berkeley, University of Virginia, and BU.
