Remote sensing of vegetation

Prof. Angela Kross

Concordia University

Dr. Angela Kross is a fulltime-faculty in Geospatial Technologies at the Department of Geography, Planning and Environment, Concordia University, Canada. She holds an Agronomic Engineering degree from the Federal University of Pernambuco, Brasil; and worked within the domain of Organic Agriculture in Brasil before pursuing her M.Sc. Degree in Geographic Information Science / Remote Sensing at the Wageningen University and Research Centre, Wageningen, Netherlands. She holds a Ph.D in Physical Geography / Remote Sensing from McGill University, Montreal, Canada. Prior to joining Concordia in August 2015, she was a postdoctoral researcher at Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada. In her research, she uses GIS and remote sensing in combination with ground measurements and models to answer questions related to ecosystem processes, vegetation development and land use change in response to anthropogenic and natural events, such as agriculture practices, mining activities and climate change. In her recent research, she has used a combination of optical, thermal and radar data to classify crop types, estimate crop biomass and estimate peatland carbon exchange. Dr. Kross is currently teaching GIS and Remote Sensing courses at Concordia University, and is in charge of the Summer GIS training program.
