  Research Collaboration

Professor Glenn's area of expertise is in remote sensing of the environment. She uses lidar, imaging spectroscopy (hyperspectral), and time series multispectral remote sensing to study changes to the landscape from disturbance (including fire).  

Her previous work on fire includes assessing post-fire burn severity, sediment transport (from both wind and fire), and vegetation recovery. 

Professor Glenn’s work ranges from fine (individual plants) to coarse (landscape) scales. She is particularly interested in using field observations to assess the uncertainty of remote sensing observations such that they can be utilized with confidence for land management needs. Currently, she is working with NASA to study the potential of global hyperspectral remote sensing measurements for a range of applications related to fire, including fuel mapping, post-fire severity assessment and recovery.
