Fall semester is almost upon us! Summer 2016 began with an amazing trip to Japan for the Japanese Geophysical Union conference in Tokyo. It was a terrific time, and I ran into Karin Tuxen-Bettman and crew at the conference. Tokyo was a blast. Lots of walking, eating fish, exploring.
This summer we said goodbye to one stalwart and much loved Kellylabber: Alice Kelly has moved to DC to start her career in the USGS as a Presidential Fellow. Her NSF postdoc project "Sustainability and Safety in the Pacific West's National Parks," has been a success, and we will all miss her wisdom, humor and view on the world. Christina has been in Kenya exploring PhD field options, and we wish her a speedy return. Marcelo continues to work on his Landsat comparison between California and Brazil; Stefania will be working on our new carbon accounting project; Jenny is focusing on our gelling spatial data science concepts and on land use change in National Parks; Kelly continues her work on the VTM project and broad-scale drivers of vegetation change; and Proxima will be back finishing up our ANR Dark Data project. Looking forward to the semester!
Welcome back to Berkeley!
