  • Topic 1: Urban Heat Policy by Chris Mackey
  • Summary 1: reflective roofs may be more powerful to decrease urban heat in about 15 years rather than vegetation policy. Positive Albedo change decrease temperature dramatically than single image comparison.
  • Topic 2: Climate Feedback in California by Aaron Judah
  • Summary 2: compare seasonal Albedo between MODIS and measured results, and also compare the NDVI vs. Albedo, NDVI vs. CO2 flux for different Flux Tower sites.
  • Topic 3: Impact of biogenic source on greenhouse gas concentration by Xin Zhang
  • Summary 3: Biogenic source should be included when consider the concentration of greenhouse gas.
