Curriculum Vitae:

Gregory Halverson

I'm a California State University, Northridge student researching the Priestley-Taylor Jet Propulsion Laboratory model of evapotranspiration as a master's thesis in Geographic Information Science. I'm developing an operational pipeline to produce evapotranspiration data using MODIS, Landsat, ECOSTRESS, and aerial imagery. I'm also partnering with the Western Water Applications Office at JPL and the New Mexico Office of the State Engineer to apply this data to agriculture, rangeland, and forest management. I hope that in some small way, my work can help solve the water crisis.
