K-State researchers share water-energy-food nexus work at joint European and NASA workshop
Stacy Hutchinson, professor of biological and agricultural engineering, and Shawn Hutchinson, professor of geography, presented research on July 9-12 at the third Joint European Association of Remote Sensing Laboratories and NASA Landuse/Landcover Change Workshop at the Mediterranean Agronomic Institute of Chania in Chania, Crete, Greece.
The workshop, hosted in conjunction with the 38th annual EARSeL Symposium, focused on the impact of land use and land cover change on the water-energy-food nexus.
K-State research presentations included "Large Scale Soil Moisture Trend Analysis in the Missouri and Arkansas-Red-White River Basins" by Stacy Hutchinson, Kelsey McDonough and Shawn Hutchinson and "Time Series Analysis of Phenometrics and Long-Term Grassland Trends across the Great Plains Ecoregion Using Moderate Resolution Satellite Imagery" by Shawn Hutchinson and Hilda Onuoha. Co-authors McDonough, Jamestown, Rhode Island, and Onuoha, Abuja, Nigeria, are doctoral students in biological and agricultural engineering and geography, respectively.
