Geoffrey Gunn specializes in satellite remote sensing, spatial-temporal analysis, and spatial data visualization. Prior to joining IISD he gained extensive training in Arctic systems science at the University of Manitoba, including field expeditions to Hudson Bay, the Beaufort Sea, and Northeast Greenland. He completed his Master of Science degree at the Centre for Earth Observation Science studying atmospheric and oceanic forcing mechanisms of sea ice in Hudson Bay. Geoffrey also has experience in grassland ecology and biogeography.
As an 11-year- old, Geoff’s favourite books were Building Blocks of the Universe by Isaac Asimov and The Demon-Haunted World: Science as a Candle in the Dark by Carl Sagan; thinkers who made science communication look easy.
