The Department of Geography & Environment, SFSU
The IGISc is currently partnering with SFSU's Department of Geography & Environment on an interdisciplinary research and monitoring project in Sierra Nevada meadows. This is a collaborative effort with our partners in the Sierra Fund. The Department of Geography & Environment's team of faculty include biogeographer Professor Sara Baguskas; remote sensing specialist Professor Leonhard Blesius; GIS specialist and lecturer Quentin Clark; geomorphologist Professor Jerry Davis; hydrologist and water quality specialist Professor Leora Nanus; and climatologist Professor Andrew Oliphant. Our estimated start date is June 1, 2019. This research is made possible through a grant from the California Department of Fish & Wildlife.
