The rapid increase in availability and usability of high resolution remote sensing technologies, whether in the lab, from the ground, air and from satellites, has significantly expanded the choice of monitoring tools available to environmental scientists. For forest ecology, new sensing platforms allow both larger scale and higher resolution monitoring than ever before, but come with significant challenges in use and interpretation. In this talk I will present some of the exciting new opportunities offered by these technologies for both re-visiting traditional ecological questions and devising new lines of investigation. I will also discuss the challenges and limitations of these data, and how modern data science techniques, including deep learning approaches, can overcome some of these.
