Curriculum Vitae

Detail

Specialty

Remote sensing, digital image processing, and data analysis

Background

John Lomas earned his Bachelor's degree in Geography from the University of Kansas.

Research Interests

Since 1995 John has worked on the development of the GreenReport® , which is used by the agricultural and forestry industries to monitor vegetation condition and change. While at KARS, John has participated in other research projects including: identification of grassland treatments using close-range hyperspectral remote sensing, change detection in pheasant habitat due to CRP management decisions, analysis of chemical spray drift zones in proximity of water bodies, and several land-use/land-cover mapping projects.
