Welcome to the Jin Lab!
Our research focuses on ecosystem responses to changing climate, fire disturbances, and management practices, as well as the subsequent consequences for energy, water, and carbon cycles. We use primarily satellite and airborne remote sensing observations, in combination with field measurements and biogeochemical modeling, to study the processes and feedbacks associated with ecosystem dynamics. Our studies cover diverse ecosystems, ranging from croplands, rangelands, savannas, to forests, and focusing particularly on landscape- and regional-scale phenomena. The primary goal is to develop improved ecosystem monitoring capabilities and provide data-driven information support for more effective resource management, mitigation and adaptation decisions.
