Prestigious William T. Pecora Award was Presented by the NASA and U.S. Department of the Interior

AMSTERDAM, November 29, 2010 - Elsevier is pleased to congratulate Prof. Marvin Bauer for receiving the
2010 William T. Pecora Award, in recognition of his many contributions to
remote sensing education, science and applications and sustained
accomplishments. The award was presented by the U.S. Department of the
Interior and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA).

Earlier this month, the award was presented by Dr. Brad Doorn of NASA's
Science Mission Directorate and Dr. Thomas Loveland of the U.S. Geological
Survey's Earth Resources Observation and Science Center. The William T.
Award is presented annually to recognize outstanding contributions by
individuals or groups toward understanding the Earth by means of remote

As a research agronomist for the Purdue University Laboratory for
Applications of Remote Sensing, Prof. Bauer helped define the role of remote
sensing for agriculture and forestry and made significant contributions to
NASA's Large Area Crop Inventory Experiment. At the University of Minnesota
he also investigated forestry applications. His recent work has concentrated
on monitoring lake water quality, impervious surface mapping, land cover
classification, and change detection. Prof. Bauer has mentored many students
during his career.

Secretary of the Interior Ken Salazar and NASA Administrator Charles
said in the award's citation, "Dr. Bauer is perhaps best known for 30
years of outstanding service as the editor-in-chief for the premier remote
sensing journal - Remote Sensing of the Environment. Through his untiring
efforts, it has become the top-rated remote sensing journal according to the
Science Citation Index Impact Factor. Dr. Bauer has directly improved the
credibility of remote sensing science through his commitment to the timely
publication of the highest quality papers".

Remote Sensing of Environment serves the remote sensing community with
the publication of results on theory, science, applications and technology of
remote sensing of earth resources and environment. Thoroughly
interdisciplinary, the journal publishes on terrestrial, oceanic, and
atmospheric sensing. Remote Sensing of Environment ranks #1 with the highest
Impact Factor in the category "Remote Sensing" of the ISI Journal Citation
