Corey Scher

Corey specializes in water quality remote sensing and geodetics applied to hydrologic processes. He is currently a research fellow and graduate student at the City University of New York developing techniques to measure coastal water quality parameters from satellite imagery in Professor Maria Tzortziou’s Land Ocean Atmosphere Interactions Lab. He received his bachelor’s degree in Geology from UC Berkeley in 2017 under the direction of Professor Walter J. Alvarez, the geologist who discovered the Cretaceous-Paleogene Boundary. At UC Berkeley, Corey was a research apprentice for two years under Professor Laurel Larsen and, with her Environmental Systems Dynamics Lab group, Corey helped to conduct an experiment on vegetative controls on landform aggradation in the Wax Lake Delta, Louisiana and presented on work to the American Geophysical Union testing classical scaling relationships in river channel geometry using high-resolution LiDAR imagery of river channel bathymetry. Corey has also developed novel methods of monitoring groundwater overdraft remotely using a combination of GRACE and radar interferometry and he volunteers to support humanitarian investigations into the environmental implications of political conflict using his expertise in earth observation.
