Dr. Craig Coburn

                 Dr. Coburn’s research is broadly focused in the area of remote sensing. The majority of his work focuses on finding new ways of visualizing problems and extracting information from remotely sensed data. His recent research has included  developing a digital remote sensing system, building and testing a goniometer to measure BRDF of canopies, and continuing to work on better ways to process data with complex structures. He also works on estimating the drought conditions in the prairies via remote sensing.
