Forest carbon monitoring methods, invented in Hawaii, are now globally accepted. Asner will discuss his CLASlite forest monitoring project, providing deforestation monitoring software and training to government and private organizations in more than 130 countries, as well as the Spectranomics Project and the Carnegie Airborne Observatory, an advanced Earth mapping facility that supports large-scale ecosystem research, conservation and sustainable development.

Greg Asner was elected to the U.S. National Academy of Sciences in 2013 and has served in many prestigious posts, including Chair of the NASA Senior Review Panel and the steering committee for the U.S. Carbon Cycle Science Program. He investigates the interactions between land use, climate, and ecosystems through a combination of extensive field study, airborne and satellite remote sensing, and computer modeling. His work has uncovered ecological change in remote forests and desert regions of the world. In January 2019, he will join Arizona State University School of Social Sciences where he will direct five new programs, including Pacific Ridge to Reef, Planet Incubator and the Global Airborne Observatory.
