This December I attended the AGU Meeting in San Francisco, California for the first time. I presented a poster summarizing methods for mapping available wetland habitat from Landsat 5, 7, and 8 to enable analyses over three decades. Also included was an analysis of 30 years of habitat availability patterns in the Sacramento Valley applying these methods. About 25,000 earth scientists attend this meeting every year, which can be a little overwhelming. I came home with some excellent feedback on my research and a notebook chock full of scribbled ideas for future work.
