OTS conferences for 2012 have begun
On Thursday March 15, Dr. Armond Joyce shared the key findings of "Land use change in Costa Rica", the research that he developed between 1966 and 2006, which inspired the book homonymous and have been updated with data from 2011.
Dr. Joyce visited Costa Rica for the first time in 1965 as a graduate student at Pennsylvania State University, to participate in a course on tropical ecology fundamentals offered by OTS. He returned to the country to do research for his master's and doctorate, and remained tied to Costa Rica with multiple investigations during the 30 years that he was employed by the Interamerican Geodetic Survey and NASA, where he was responsible for environmental monitoring of land through sensors on satellites and airplanes.
Twelve years ago Dr. Joyce began a study of the relationships of changes in land use with environmental, economic, social, and legislative factors.
The findings of this study were presented at the conference organized by OTS, which took place in the Miniauditorio de la Facultad de Ciencias Agroalimentarias of the UCR.
