My current research focuses on using satellite microwave data to track phenology across biomes at continental and global scales. Ideally the microwave signal can determine the start, peak and end of the growing season and we can also incorporate optical-IR satellite imagery and corresponding vegetation indices to inform and enhance our phenology models. Assessments of these long term phenology trends will allow us to identify times of significant plant stress and physiological constraints to canopy evaporation, ecosystem productivity and terrestrial carbon sequestration of atmospheric carbon dioxide. I also co-lead the Land Product Validation (LPV) Phenology Sub-Group of The Committee on Earth Observation Satellites (CEOS) Working Group on Calibration and Validation (WGCV), which aims to address the challenges associated with the validation of global land products. The newly formed Phenology Sub-Group is in the process of developing a plan on how to effectively use ground to airborne level phenological measurements to validate satellite-based phenology products. This plan involves an internationally coordinated remote sensing phenology validation and inter-comparison effort.
