Mary Martin

professor, complex systems, University of New Hampshire

Since completing the Natural Resources graduate program at UNH in 1994, Mary Martin has continued working at the Complex Systems Research Center as a research assistant professor. Martin's work has focused primarily on the use of hyperspectral remote sensing data for the determination of forest productivity, nutrient cycling and species classification. This work has utilized data from NASA's Airborne Visible/Infrared Imaging Spectrometer (AVIRIS) which has been flown extensively over a number of sites in the northeastern US. This work is a multi-investigator effort involving UNH faculty/staff and researchers from the US Forest Service Norteastern Station in Durham. Extensive field data collections, GIS data, remote sensing imagery, and ecosystem modeling are combined in this effort to scale relationships derived from intensive plot level sampling to the full extent of our image data.
