John Kovacs

Adjunct Research Scientist – Coastal and Estuarine Ecology

John grew up in Ottawa, Canada far from any tropical coast. His interest in mangrove forests began with his graduate work in Guyana and he has since devoted the majority of his research time exploring various remotely sensed imaging techniques for mapping and monitoring them. John has worked extensively on mangrove forests of Mexico, Guinea and Nigeria and is currently working with TropWATER’s Mangrove Research Hub on mangrove forests of the southern hemisphere. Additionally, he has been examining the application of new remote sensing tools, including UAS, for precision agriculture.
