Environmental Protection Agency Honors EFETAC Scientist and Collaborators

EFETAC research ecologist Kurt Riitters and collaborators from the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Office of Research and Development and the European Commission Joint Research Centre are recipients of an EPA Level III Scientific and Technological Achievement Award (STAA). Their paper, "A national assessment of green infrastructure and change for the conterminous United States using morphological image processing," was recognized as an unusually notable research or technological effort in the category of Sustainability and Innovation as part of the EPA's 2011 STAA competition. A subcommittee of EPA's Science Advisory Board judged the competition, and the award certificate, co-signed by EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson and the Acting Assistant Administrator for Research and Development Lek Kadeli, honors the collaborators' development of models for temporal analysis of green infrastructure dynamics in support of sustainable communities.
