Algae-Laboratory Growth Assessment Evaluation

Presented by Dr. Peter Waller, University of Arizona

Biography:
My background is in irrigation and remote sensing. My primary research focus at this time is the production of biofuels from algae. We have a patent pending algae growth system installed at the ARID research facility, which includes infrastructure and instrumentation for research on algae production. I also have a long standing project with the USDA-ARS focused on remote sensing and precision agriculture. My part in this project is the development and programming of the WINDS model, which is a computer model run on daily time steps for precision agriculture management in irrigation agriculture.
