Steve is a hydrologist with expertise in monitoring floodplain vegetations response to climate change


Dr Steve Gao is a Research Fellow in the University of Canberra and CSIRO Land and Water’s Managing Water Ecosystems group. He is experienced in remote sensing, modelling solar-induced chlorophyll fluorescence, machine learning and radiative transfer models. His research advances techniques to evaluate woody floodplain vegetation response to drought and environmental flows. The focus of his research is to integrate new approaches involving remote sensing and measurement of evapotranspiration to advance the understanding of floodplain ecosystem function across broad climatic zones and scales.
