Dr. Leisz’s project, “Increased Accessibility, Landscape Changes, Rural Transformations, and Urbanization: Impacts of the East-West Economic Corridor from Da Nang, Vietnam, to Khon Kaen, Thailand” explores the impact that the East-West Economic Corridor from Da Nang, Vietnam, to Khon Kaen, Thailand, is having on land-use and land-cover, and urban growth patterns in three different, yet contiguous, countries with different political histories and current policies.
This funding opportunity allows researchers to develop and use NASA remote sensing technologies expand on our understanding and impactions of human interactions with the environment and to further the goals of the U.S. Global Climate Research Program (USGCRP).
Leisz will be presenting his planned research at the 2013 LCLUC Annual Spring Science Meeting in Rockville, Maryland next April.
