Earth & Environment PhD student Taejin Park published an article in the journal Remote Sensing. The article is titled “Allometric scaling and resource limitations model of tree heights: Part 3. Model optimization and testing over continental China.” The article presents results that show the optimized ASRL model is capable of satisfactorily retrieving tree heights over continental China at a range of spatial scales. The article can be downloaded from http://www.mdpi.com/2072-4292/6/5/3533.
The paper, “Effects of spatial pattern of green space on urban cooling in a large metropolitan area of eastern China,” will be published at a later date.
Earth & Environment Professor Ranga Myneni coauthored an article in the journal Nature.
The article is titled “Widespread decline of Congo rainforest greenness in the past decade.”
It presents observational evidence for a widespread decline in forest greenness over the past decade based on analyses of satellite data (optical, thermal, microwave and gravity) from several independent sensors over the Congo basin.
The paper, “Good practices for estimating area and assessing accuracy of land change,” was published in the 148th volume of the journal and can be accessed online here.
For the paper, Olofsson collaborated with a group of fellow scientists, including Earth & Environment Professor and Chair Curtis Woodcock.

The article, “Bias in the attribution of forest carbon sinks,” reports that a substantial fraction of the estimated terrestrial carbon sink could be incorrectly attributed to environmental change rather than changes in management practices. The article can be accessed here.

The article is titled “Repeated erosion of cohesive sediments with biofilms” and was published in the 39th volume of Advances in Geosciences.
Earth & Environment Professor Duncan FitzGerald and his former graduate student Chris Hein recently published a new article in the Geological Society of London.
The article, ”Evolution of paraglacial coasts in response to changes in fluvial sediment supply” was first published online March 12, 2014.
Working with FitzGerald and Hein on the article were Ilya Buynevich, Sytze van Heteren, and Joe Kelley.
Hein is currently a Professor at the Virginia Institute of Marine Science.

Earth & Environment Professor Ranga Myneni recently co-authored three new articles.
“Temperature and Snow-Mediated Moisture Controls of Summer Photosynthetic Activity in Northern Terrestrial Ecosystems between 1982 and 2011” was published February 14th, 2014 in Remote Sensing.
“Changes in vegetation photosynthetic activity trends across the Asia-Pacific region over the last three decades” will be published in the 144th volume of Remote Sensing of the Environment on March 25th.
Finally, “Estimation of forest aboveground biomass in California using canopy height and leaf area index estimated from satellite data” is currently in press and available online from Remote Sensing of the Environment.
The paper, “Landsat-8: Science and product vision for terrestrial global change research,” will be officially released in the upcoming April 2014 edition of the journal; an online version is available to the public now by following the link.
The paper focuses on the new satellite system, Landsat 8.
