Welcome to the Gamon Lab website
The Gamon Lab uses remote sensing to study plant biodiversity and function, including the “breathing of the planet” – the exchanges of carbon and water vapor between the biosphere and the atmosphere. Dr. John Gamon is a professor and director of the Nebraska Earth Observatory (NEO), the airborne research program within CALMIT at the University of Nebraska – Lincoln.
“I welcome inquiries from applicants interested in ecology (ecophysiology, ecosystems ecology, ecosystem modeling and biodiversity), remote sensing, informatics and cyberinfrastructure. Current opportunities exist for undergraduate students, graduate students and technical staff (see below). Please complete an online application (see above).”
