Dr. John Zobitz

I am an Associate Professor in the Department of Mathematics, Statistics, and Computer Science at Augsburg University, where I have worked since 2007. My research involves the acquisition and processing of data collected through NASA. Primarily this includes ground based observations terrestrial earth observation data (eddy covariance data of net carbon dioxide exchange and associated environmental measurements) and satellite reflectance data from MODIS. Applications of these data include visualization of terrestrial carbon exchange, parameterization of process-based ecosystem models using a data assimilation framework, and development of new algorithms for the processing of remote sensing data.
