Isabell used drone imaging and satellite-based remote sensing to characterize habitat use and disturbance (!pink-footed goose). Her project was a part of COAT Tools, and collaboration between UiT, Norwegian Polar Institute and Aarhus University. With financial support from Tromsø Research Foundation. Isabell’s work advanced our knowledge of remote sensing techniques for adaptive monitoring of moss tundra. Congratulations, Dr. Eischeid!
