Sobre los expositores visitantes:

Claudio Stokle (https://bsyse.wsu.edu/people/faculty/stockle/)

Dr. Claudio Stöckle’s research is in the Land, Air, Water Resources and Environmental Engineering (LAWREE) research emphasis area. His focus is on the development and application of analytical tools to study, understand and manage the interaction between soil, weather, and crops. He is particularly interested in modeling the environmental impact of agricultural production at the field and water shed levels and in further enhancement and support of the Agricultural Crop Systems Modeling Software (CropSyst) he as developed.

Lav Khot (https://bsyse.wsu.edu/people/faculty/khot/)

Dr. Khot works in the Agricultural Automation Engineering  research emphasis area of the Department of Biological Systems Engineering. His research and extension program focuses on “Sensing and automation technologies for site specific and precision management of production agriculture”. Special emphasis is towards integration of

  • Remote Sensing (Unmanned and Manned Aerial Systems)
  • Ground-based (Proximal) Crop Sensing
  • Decision Support Systems and Information Delivery Technologies
  • Precise Applications of various Production Inputs
  • Agricultural Machinery and Processes
  • Data-based Modeling

Troy Peters (https://bsyse.wsu.edu/people/faculty/peters/)

Research and Teaching Interests

Troy’s research work is in the Land, Air, Water Resources, and Environmental Engineering (LAWREE) emphasis area.  His primary focus is on agricultural irrigation.  This includes deficit irrigation, irrigation water hydraulics, irrigation scheduling and management, irrigation automation, irrigation water quality, and crop water use estimation.  Troy is located at the Irrigated Agriculture Research and Extension Center in Prosser, WA, and is also affiliated with the Center for Precision and Automated Agricultural Systems.

Lenín Henríquez en la American Geophysical Union (AGU) Fall Meeting 2016

El candidato a doctor en ciencias de la ingeniería participó en en la AGU Fall Meeting 2016 realizada en San Francisco, Estados Unidos de América, durante los días 12 a 16 de diciembre de 2016.
En la reunión se presentaron los avances de su investigación a través del póster: “Adaptation measures evaluation on agriculture under future climate and land use change scenarios in central Chile”, que estuvo participando dentro de la categoría de Outstanding Student Paper Award (OSPA).
