society-environment interactions, natural resource conservation & policy, sustainable development, and geospatial technologies, including satellite imaging. Her talk will share research results from two projects in sub-Arctic Iceland and south Greenland. In
Iceland, she uses Landsat satellite data to monitor changes to the Hofsjökull icecap in the central highlands over the past twenty-five years. She also works as part of an interdisciplinary team focused on studying the Kujataa UNESCO World Heritage
