Biography

Dr Eve Daly, is a Geophysicist and a lecturer in Earth and Ocean Sciences, teaching Geophysics, GIS, and Remote Sensing.   Eve works in the "Critical Zone" - simply defined as the region where rock meets life: the permeable layer from the tops of trees to the bottom of the groundwater zone. This is the region within the subsurface where Hydrogeophysics meets Agrogeophysics increasingly via machine learning.    Eve established the HYdrogeophysics and REmote Sensing (HY-RES) research group in 2019 with primary focus on understanding and developing multiscale tools for monitoring Soil Moisture, a key climate variable. Recent projects include using geophysical data to identify peat soils - even under grass or forest cover using the Geological Survey Ireland¿s airborne Tellus survey, specifically the Radiometric dataset. This information is vital for the estimation of appropriate carbon emission factors from Irish soils and the management of climate emission targets. Other projects use field-based geophysical methods for monitoring soil compaction due to cattle grazing patterns, and generating high resolution soil moisture maps from satellite based systems. This work will have impact in improving farm drainage maps with subsequent influence on grazing and crop management practices.
