The case studies in this resource have been developed with input from several people who are mentioned within the respective case studies. The core team developing this resource includes:

Anupma PrakashDr. Anupma Prakash is an Associate Professor in remote sensing geophysics carrying out research on Arctic processes at the Geophysical Institute, University of Alaska Fairbanks (UAF). She teaches post-secondary courses in remote sensing and GIS at the Department of Geology and Geophysics, UAF. She is also funded by the NASA ESSE21 Program, NSF GeoEd Program, Alaska Space Grant Program, and State industries. Dr Prakash is involved in conducting teacher training, K12 and post-secondary curriculum development, and making science data and research results accessible to all audiences. More information on her research and teaching is available at https://anupma-prakash.github.io/.

Rudi GensDr. Rudiger Gens is a Remote Sensing Scientist at the Alaska Satellite Facility at UAF. His research specialization is in the processing and applications of Interferometric Synthetic Aperture Radar data. Dr. Gens is also a cooperating faculty at the Department of Geology and Geophysics at UAF, where he teaches courses in the principles and applications of SAR and InSAR that are open to participants from all over the nation. Dr. Gens is the coordinator for the ASF seminar series and involved with ASF outreach activities, including but not limited to SAR user support, teacher training and reaching out to K-16 audience. More information on his research and teaching is available at https://rudigens.github.io/.

Steve McClungSteve C McClung is a geosciences education/outreach media specialist. Steve is a graduate of the Geosciences Department at Oregon State University, where his research focused on the use of remote sensing and GIS for the delineation of lahar (volcanic debris flow) hazard zones for Mount Shasta, California. His experience in geohazards modeling, html programming, and scientific visualization have helped to bring Earth Science research to the classroom via the Internet.
