Simon Jones

Professor of Remote Sensing

Professor of Remote Sensing.

Expertise on the earth observation of terrestrial ecosystems.

Particularly interested in forest dynamics incl. C sequestration (but also fire detection and fuel loads).

Worked with and for the European Commission JRC global vegetation mapping project TREES.

Federal government National Carbon Accounting Scheme (NCAS).

Victorian and NSW government’s on forests disturbance and recovery.
