Overview

Research
Research area

Remote sensing of tropical dry forest environments. His current research is conducted in Costa Rica and Panama.

Research interest

Dr. Sanchez-Azofeifa research efforts focus on understanding how tropical dry forests ecosystems respond to climate change. He is interested on exploring linkages between environmental change and tropical dry forest productivity, phenology, carbon and water fluxes, spatio-temporal changes on Leaf Area Index (LAI), and Photosynthetically Active Radiation (PAR) measured advanced wireless sensor networks. His work also explores linkages between the different biophysical variables mentioned above and remote sensing observations (drone, airborne and space-borne), specifically he is interested on linkages between LiDAR and hyperspectral remote sensing. His research is deeply rooted in the new fourth emerging paradigm in Science (denominated eScience), in which new scientific discoveries are driven by intensive data exploration generated either from sensor networks and mathematical simulation.
