RSGAL‘s goal is to understand multiscale and multidimensional dynamics of landscapes through the application of hyper-resolution remote sensing. RSGAL develops methods necessary to analyze hyper-resolution remotely sensed data by exploiting spatial, temporal and spectral domains of the data. RSGAL is dedicated to increasing the retention and success of underrepresented minorities in geosciences.

Dr. Moskal directs the PFC  which was founded in 1999, as part of the Washington State Advanced Technology Initiative (ATI), by the WA state legislature. The mission of PFC is to develop advanced technologies to improve the quality and reliability of information needed for planning, implementation, and monitoring for natural resource management, to ensure sustainable management. PFC’s external research funding is ~$10 million/biennium.
