Webinar on Remote Sensing to Monitor Treatment of Phragmites

on November 11, 2015

Through a grant from the University of Michigan Water Center, Michigan Tech Research Institute and Applied Ecological Services have been conducting analyses of field and remote sensing data to develop standardized methods for monitoring treatment success. In this webinar, Dr. Laura Borgeau-Chavez of Michigan Tech Research Institute shares how, through field sampling, they have assessed treated and non-treated non-native Phragmites dominant sites in Green and Saginaw Bays for biodiversity of birds, amphibians and vegetation. Jason Carlson, head of Geospatial and Remote Sensing at AES demonstrates that the use of remote sensing and aerial imagery can be key strategies in fighting the invasion of non-native Phragmites.
