The next SEFS Seminar will have a time change from the usual Wednesday to Monday, Nov. 2 at 4:30 p.m.
L. Monika Moskal, SEFS professor, and Dr. Meghan Halabisky will present “Adventures in Remote Sensing: Linking Forest and Wetland Carbon through Remote Sensing.” The webinar will be viewable via Zoom here. The discussion is open to anyone interested in attending. A usual Q&A session will be held immediately after the presentation.
Here is an abstract for the presentation:
“Terrestrial wetlands are the largest reservoir of carbon in North America, with roughly half of wetland area occurring in forested systems. Wetlands, defined here as areas saturated at a frequency and duration sufficient to support a prevalence of vegetation typically adapted for life in saturated conditions, usually contain more carbon in their soils than upland areas due to prolonged periods of soil saturation. While forested wetlands are important long-term carbon sinks and important in global carbon accounting, they have received relatively little research attention and are, therefore, a significant source of uncertainty in carbon inventories and monitoring systems. Dr. Moskal will be presenting research from her 1st 9 months of the NASA funded Carbon Monitoring System, Teal Carbon project that has leveraged stakeholder partnerships through the Precision Forestry Cooperative (directed by Dr. Moskal). The overarching goal of this study is to develop and implement a remote sensing driven, spatiotemporally explicit approach to monitoring total carbon stocks of forested wetlands. This will improve understanding of differences in carbon storage between forested wetlands and uplands with similar aboveground carbon stocks, across a range of hydrodynamics and moisture regimes. Our multiple objectives aim to demonstrate and deploy a novel and accurate way of mapping of forested wetlands and the above- and below-ground carbon stocks associated with these wetlands. The project is a collaboration between UW (Moskal, Halabiksy, Butman and Harvey) and University of Minnesota (Babcock) and stakeholders from the PFC Advisory Board, UW DNR, WA Department of Ecology, USDA Forest Service and WA WetSAG.”
