Jeff and his advisor won a Google Earth Engine Research Award, providing funding for his research for one year. With his advisor Anna Michalak, Jeff will use the funding to expand his remote sensing work in Lake Erie to 167 freshwater lakes globally. The project, one of only nine funded, was titled "Developing global maps of algal blooms in large freshwater lakes since 1985." With this award, Jeff seeks to create the first-ever maps of freshwater phytoplankton blooms globally to better understand potential trends in bloom occurrence over time and the impact of factors such as land use and climate change in influencing these trends.
