About Dr. Ray Anderson
Dr. Ray Anderson is a Research Soil Scientist at USDA-ARS, US Salinity Laboratory in Riverside and an Adjunct Professor in the Department of Environmental Sciences at the University of California, Riverside. Before coming to Riverside, Dr. Anderson worked as a Research Associate (Research Hydrologist) at ARS-Parlier and at the University of California, Irvine, and the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities. Dr. Anderson’s research methods integrate direct field measurements, micrometeorological techniques, satellite remote sensing, and climatic observations to research agricultural water use and productivity at field to regional scales.
Dr. Anderson’s current research interests at ARS include (1) estimating water use and the efficiency of orchard and specialty crops using field measurements and remote sensing, (2) development and refinement of techniques to observe agricultural evapotranspiration and crop productivity, (3) integrating observations of crop water use and productivity into precision agricultural frameworks, and (4) assessing the impact of new production practices and strategies on crop resilience to abiotic stress.
