Elsevier Congratulates Prof. Marvin Bauer, Editor-in-Chief Remote Sensing of Environment
Prestigious William T. Pecora Award was presented by the NASA and U.S. Department of the Interior
Amsterdam, 29 November 2010 - Elsevier is pleased to congratulate Prof. Marvin Bauer for receiving the 2010 William T. Pecora Award, in recognition of his many contributions to remote sensing education, science and applications and sustained accomplishments. The award was presented by the U.S. Department of the Interior and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA).
Earlier this month, the award was presented by Dr. Brad Doorn of NASA’s Science Mission Directorate and Dr. Thomas Loveland of the U.S. Geological Survey’s Earth Resources Observation and Science Center. The William T. Pecora Award is presented annually to recognize outstanding contributions by individuals or groups toward understanding the Earth by means of remote sensing.
As a research agronomist for the Purdue University Laboratory for Applications of Remote Sensing, Prof. Bauer helped define the role of remote sensing for agriculture and forestry and made significant contributions to NASA’s Large Area Crop Inventory Experiment. At the University of Minnesota he also investigated forestry applications. His recent work has concentrated on monitoring lake water quality, impervious surface mapping, land cover classification, and change detection. Prof. Bauer has mentored many students during his career.
Secretary of the Interior Ken Salazar and NASA Administrator Charles Bolden said in the award’s citation, “Dr. Bauer is perhaps best known for 30 years of outstanding service as the editor-in-chief for the premier remote sensing journal – Remote Sensing of Environment. Through his untiring efforts, it has become the top-rated remote sensing journal according to the Science Citation Index Impact Factor. Dr. Bauer has directly improved the credibility of remote sensing science through his commitment to the timely publication of the highest quality papers”.
Remote Sensing of Environment serves the remote sensing community with the publication of results on theory, science, applications and technology of remote sensing of earth resources and environment. Thoroughly interdisciplinary, the journal publishes on terrestrial, oceanic, and atmospheric sensing. Remote Sensing of Environment ranks #1 with the highest Impact Factor in the category “Remote Sensing” of the ISI Journal Citation Reports.
