Huemmrich. Fred Huemmrich (618/ UMBC) presented a paper titled "Hyperspectral Remote Sensing of Terrestrial Ecosystem Productivity from ISS" at the 2016 International Space Station (ISS) Research and Development conference in San Diego on July 12. The presentation examined issues in utilizing hyperspectral imagery from the Hyperspectral Imager for Coastal Ocean (HICO) sensor mounted on ISS for determining landscape patterns of ecosystem productivity for multiple vegetation types. His presentation was highlighted in the latest issue of Upward – the quarterly magazine of the ISS National Laboratory.
