April 3 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm

The 2024 Spring Seminar Series will feature Gabriel de Oliveira, assistant professor at the University of South Alabama Department of Earth Sciences. Dr. Oliveira will give a presentation titled “Deforestation, fire, and land cover changes in tropical/subtropical regions” on Wednesday, April 3, at 11 a.m. in Room 2217 of the College of Forestry, Wildlife and Environment Building located at 602 Duncan Drive, Auburn, AL.

Dr. Oliveira is hosted by Dr. Latif Kalin, Clinton-McClure Professor in the College of Forestry, Wildlife and Environment. Oliveira will discuss biosphere-atmosphere interactions using remote sensing and field observations in Amazonia, the world’s largest tropical rainforest and river basin.

Dr. Oliveira is a Fellow of the United States National Academy of Sciences and has researched the Amazon Rainforest for approximately 15 years. He focuses on orbital remote sensing and ground observation which reveal how deforestation, fire, and drought affect climate and plant processes. His research has been published in notable journals including Science and Nature.
