stow2“Department of Geography professor Douglas Stow, an internationally recognized leader in remote-sensing analysis of terrestrial environments, has been named one of the recipients of The President’s Leadership Fund Awards for Faculty and Staff Excellence.

“Stow says he’ll use his award to seed or augment projects. For example, he plans to process and analyze 10 years of satellite data from the North Slope of Alaska to assess whether snow is melting earlier and shrubs are expanding within Arctic tundra lands.”
