RECCS Student Poster Session at UCAR

RECCS Student Poster Session at UCAR

Join the Research Experiences for Community College Students (RECCS) team as the student researchers present posters of their work at a jointly held poster session with other REU students. Includes a small reception.

 

The Research Experience for Community College Students (RECCS) is a summer research internship program for Colorado community college students. The goal of RECCS is to give community college students an authentic research experience that allows them to explore environmental or geosciences and gain the confidence to transition to a four-year program in the STEM (Science Technology Engineering Math) disciplines.

Cryosphere and Polar Science Seminar

Cryosphere and Polar Science Seminar

Mapping thermokarst landforms from remote sensing imagery with deep learning by Lin Liu, The Chinese University of Hong Kong

The number and extent of thermokarst landforms in permafrost areas have increased in recent decades. However, their distribution and temporal changes, especially the non-lake ones on the Tibetan Plateau, are poorly understood or quantified. We developed a new strategy to utilize deep learning in the processing of remote sensing imagery.  Applying this method to CubeSats optical images over central Tibet, we delineated 196 retrogressive thaw slumps, with an F1 score of 0.829. By collecting and incorporating more training data, this method can be potentially extended to a large area and help to determine the vulnerability of permafrost landforms to warming.
