Dr. Brean Duncan is a Geographer/Spatial Ecologist with the Ecological Program at NASA’s John F. Kennedy Space Center, Florida. His interests include investigating how anthropogenic influences alter natural terrestrial systems and their maintenance processes with a focus on mimicking the results of natural maintenance processes through land management application. This includes establishing baseline knowledge of resource abundance/distribution/pattern to guide effective land management practices for conserving/maintaining native fire dependent species habitats and favorable demography for their survival. He has considerable experience using remote sensing, geographic information system (GIS), and global positioning system (GPS) technology to design, implement, and automate spatial databases for ecological modeling and spatial analysis. This includes vegetation, landuse/landcover, habitat, fuels, fire event and fire regime mapping/modeling.
