University of Texas at Austin geographer Kelley Crews-Meyer focuses on how humans affect their environment. Using a combination of remote sensing technology and field work, she documents patterns of change on Earth.

"One of the things we're finding in a lot of the analysis -- not just in the work I do, but in the field generally, on many different continents -- is that we're seeing, I think, a threshhold change, not only in the rates of certain processes, whether it's deforestation or climate change, but we're seeing a change in the types of process," says Crews-Meyer. "It really looks as if we may be working into a different era, environmentally speaking."
