Yuyu Zhou

New Content ItemDr. Yuyu Zhou is an Associate Professor in the Department of Geological & Atmospheric Sciences at Iowa State University, USA. His research interests lie in the applications of geospatial technologies including remote sensing, GIS, geovisualization, spatial analytic tools, and integrated assessment modeling to understanding the problems of global environmental change (e.g., urbanization, urban heat island, ecosystem phenology, energy supply and demand, and greenhouse gas emissions) and their potential solutions. His research focus has always been in quantifying spatiotemporal patterns of environmental change and developing modeling mechanisms to bridge the driving forces (both natural and socioeconomic factors) and consequences of environmental change so that the impacts of human activities on environment can be effectively measured, modeled, and evaluated.

Research interests: remote sensing, urbanization, urban heat island, urban ecology, climate change
