Blair KennedyBlair Kennedy is a remote sensing scientist working with the Landscape Sciences and Technology division of Environment and Climate Change Canada in Ottawa. His current research focuses on characterizing the spatial and temporal changes occurring in northern ecosystems using a variety of field and remote sensing-based methodologies. Blair has a Ph.D. in Geography from Carleton University, where he investigated the retrieval of biophysical and biochemical properties of Arctic vegetation from imaging spectroscopy using machine learning and physical modeling techniques. Blair is contributing his remote sensing expertise to the Nı́o Nę P'ęnę́ project, specifically towards investigating the vegetation related changes occurring in the high-elevation ecosystems of the Mackenzie Mountains and how these changes are impacting the summer ranges of northern mountain caribou.
