Dr. Pamela Nagler's expertise includes remote sensing applications in ecohydrology with a focus on scaling ground-based evapotranspiration (water use) measurements of plants in riparian ecosystems, their uplands and adjacent agricultural fields. Applications also include mapping vegetation communities and phenological change in the Sonoran and Mojave Deserts and the transboundary region of northwestern Mexico and southwestern U.S. Dr. Nagler is a Designated Campus Colleague in the Biosystems Engineering Department.
