The Department of Geography and the Environment is pleased to announce that Doctoral Candidate Molly Polk has been awarded an Imagery Grant from the DigitalGlobe Foundation, a leading global provider of commercial high-resolution earth imagery products and services. Sourced from an advanced satellite constellation, their imagery solutions support a wide variety of uses and the collection contains over 4 billion square kilometers of earth imagery and imagery products. Molly will be using the imagery to support her research on high elevation peatlands, which are changing due to glacier recession. Her research also has implications for national park management, for evaluating land use by local people, and for interpreting past and likely future landscape development.
