Thesis Title

Characterizing vegetation dynamics using satellite based microwave and optical observations

Biography

Xi started his PhD in March 2015 at the Climate Change Research Center at the UNSW. During his PhD career, he will be comparing and combining the satellite-based new microwave with traditional optical observations, to see if it could help us better understand the dynamics of the vegetation. In order to answer this question, bushfires in Australia, croplands in China and deforestation activities in tropical areas will be investigated, which are in different land cover types and with different economic and ecological impacts. Xi is from Nanjing, China and finished his Master’s degree there.
