Join us at the Women in Science and Engineering (WiSE) program's STEM Bytes Seminar to hear research done at USC by current PhD students and postdocs.

Speaker: Katie Grant, PhD Student in Earth Sciences

Bio: Katie Grant is in the third year of her PhD in Earth Sciences Department at USC and a Graduate Student Intern at NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory. Her work utilizes satellite and airborne remote sensing platforms, accompanied by extensive field campaigns, to characterize surface mineralogy and associated Earth System processes.

Talk: A Field Guide to Earth System Observation: Hyperspectral Remote Sensing and the Critical Zone

Abstract: Visible-to-shortwave infrared (VSWIR) imaging spectroscopy, also known as hyperspectral data, is a powerful remote sensing tool that has become increasingly available in recent years. These high spatial and spectral resolution data have enabled the large-scale mapping of vegetation, soil, and rock characteristics on Earth; however, the potential to leverage these datasets to infer soil and dust properties, including composition and toxicity, remains largely unexplored. This talk discusses Earth System Observation research and applications and the need to bridge remote sensing and Earth System Sciences.
