Ni-Bin Chang named next editor of Journal of Applied Remote Sensing

SPIE Senior Member Ni-Bin Chang of the University of Central Florida (USA) has been appointed editor of the Journal of Applied Remote Sensing (JARS), effective 1 January 2014.

Chang, a professor in the Civil, Environmental, and Construction Engineering Department at UCF, will succeed founding editor Wei Gao who has served as editor since 2007.

JARS is published online in the SPIE Digital Library and disseminates peer-reviewed papers covering remote-sensing theory and applications in the atmosphere, oceans, ecosystems, agriculture, space, hydrology, and other environmental areas.

SPIE Fellow and Publications Committee Chair John Greivenkamp said that SPIE is pleased that Chang will become editor of JARS.

“Dr. Chang is an internationally recognized expert in remote sensing who brings a wealth of knowledge, insight, and enthusiasm that will be a great benefit to the journal and the entire technical community,” Greivenkamp said.

Chang has master’s and PhD degrees in environmental systems engineering from Cornell University (USA) and a BS from National Chiao Tung University (Taiwan). He has edited, authored, and coauthored more than 205 peer-reviewed journal articles, 13 books, 11 special issues of academic journals, 19 invited articles in books, encyclopedias, and newsletters, and 167 conference papers.

The holder of eight U.S. patents, Chang’s major research interests include water resources and environmental systems analysis, sustainability sciences, and hydrological and environmental remote-sensing and monitoring networks.

His research activities include both basic and applied sciences for the development of next-generation engineering systems in the areas of ecological engineering, green engineering, industrial ecology, and earth-systems engineering.

“JARS has become a distinguished journal in the field of remote sensing since its launch in 2007,” Chang said. “I’m delighted to continue the work of Dr. Wei Gao and to carry on the tradition of excellence at this journal.”
