Chris Soulard started with the U.S. Geological Survey in 2002 and has been with the Western Geographic Science Center since 2005.
Early in his career, Chris applied his knowledge of remote sensing into projects focusing on multi-temporal change analyses using Landsat imagery and aerial photography, most notably the Land Cover Trends Project. Chris has since expanded his research scope to include community vulnerability assessments of tsunami and volcanic lahar hazards in the Pacific Northwest, terrestrial laser scanning to monitor soil and vegetation changes in the Mojave Desert and elsewhere, land-use/land-cover forecasting for the Western United States, and vegetation change analyses using Google Earth Engine. Chris Soulard serves as the Principal Investigator of the PLACE Project (Patterns in the Landscape – Analyses of Cause and Effect).
