Dr. Chunyuan Diao has recently received an NSF grant as the Principal Investigator of the project titled “Real-time Computational Modeling of Crop Phenological Progress towards Scalable Satellite Precision Farming”. The project will prototype advanced remote sensing cyberinfrastructure in support of both data- and computing-intensive satellite-based precision agriculture systems. It will develop a real-time parallel computational framework to model timely crop phenological progress and conditions using time series remote sensing, network models, and high-performance computing.
