2004 by Maury Nyquist Ralph R Root effortlessly made his way into the hearts and minds of everyone he met No matter what role he took in their lives colleague scientist musician teacher mentor husband parent grandparent or punmeister Ralph was an encouraging friend to all After 30 years of distinguished service to the National Park Service National Biological Service and the US Geological Survey Dr Ralph R Root 58 years old died January 17 2004 following a courageous battle with prostate cancer He is survived by his wife Charlotte two children Rachel and John granddaughter Rory and brother Fred Root was born on May 27 1945 in Erie Pennsylvania where he grew up His parents encouraged his love for music with piano and organ lessons and he sang in the school choir Root enrolled in Allegheny College where he earned a bachelor s degree in geology in 1967 After graduating Root went on to earn a master s degree in Geology and Geophysics from Indiana University in 1969 After a two year stint with Chevron Oil Company as an exploration geologist he headed to Colorado State University where in 1974 he earned his PhD in remote sensing of natural resources with a minor in ecology and hydrology His dissertation involved producing a landcover classification of the first Earth Resources Technology Satellite ERTS later renamed Landsat scene collected over Yellowstone National Park NP Root s government career took off on January 6 1974 when he accepted a job with the National Park Service NPS Denver Service Center DSC as an environmental specialist producing environmental impact statements From 1975 to 1981 he worked in several different locations and positions He was in the NPS Alaska Office for two years gathering information concerning geologic features mining and oil and gas exploration for proposed new national parks and extensions to existing parks Then he moved back to Denver as a member of the National Landmarks Program where he spent two years coordinating research contracts for studies of nationally significant landforms throughout the US The last two years of this period he spent in the DSC Environmental Investigations Unit providing documentation of mining impacts in parks throughout the US and on proposed new areas under consideration by Congress for inclusion into the NPS Root also prepared large scale geologic baseline data for parks and analyzed effects of acid rain on cliff dwellings at Mesa Verde NP In 1981 Root began working in the DSC Remote Sensing Branch Over the next four years he worked on numerous research development and applications projects that demonstrated the utility of the newly emerging geospatial technologies to provide data and analyses for improved planning and management of the National Parks and their resources From the successes of these activities in 1985 the Branch was expanded and reorganized into a headquarters office the GIS Division Over the next nine years the Division was involved in developing databases performing analyses and rapidly expanding the use of geospatial technologies throughout the NPS During that period the NPS went from just a few installations to well over 100 in parks and program offices During that same period Root performed a plethora of activities including but not limited to photointerpretation image processing data base development GIS applications remote sensing research and publication the installation administration and operation of numerous different hardware software and operating system configuration training others on different systems and applications software ongoing technical support and helping develop guidelines policies and standards In 1993 the GIS Division was transferred to the newly establish National Biological Service NBS to provide leadership in geospatial technologies to the new agency and was renamed the Technology Transfer Center TTC In 1996 the NBS became the Biological Resources Division of the US Geological Survey and TTC became the Center for Biological Informatics CBI During this rollercoaster ride of reorganizations realignments and redirections Root s career activities scaled back to a more reasonable level of concentration on geospatial applications especially the USGS NPS Vegetation Mapping Program and the newly emerging Internet technologies At this time Root implemented the first Internet world wide web and email capabilities at the American Society for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing ASPRS headquarters and was appointed and served for several years as chair of the newly established ASPRS Electronic Communications Committee Starting in 2001 Root worked the last years of his career in the USGS Rocky Mt Mapping Center s Research Applications and Technology RTA Branch primarily focusing his research on the use of different remote sensing systems for fire fuels fire effects and invasive plant species mapping Over the last ten years of his career Root also found the time to serve as a geology instructor at Colorado Christian College and give graduate seminars and serve on a PhD committee for a remote sensing student at Colorado State University During his career Root received numerous awards and letters of commendation such as the Barrier Breaker Award from Glacier National Park in 1989 and a letter of gratitude for establishing a GIS Lab in 1994 at the Wildlife Institute of India He impacted many lives through his work in parks and other areas throughout the nation and the world Root s immense dedication and enthusiasm for his work earned him the deep respect of his colleagues After 30 years of service Root was honored for his career with the establishment of an award created in his name The USGS Ralph R Root Award for Remote Sensing will be given annually to a recipient with career accomplishments that exemplify those of Root Highlights of Root s career are only a small part of the person he was An accurate characterization of Root s persona and his life is not as straight forward because he was such a complete and versatile individual He was a highly competent and accomplished scientist remote sensing and geospatial technologies geology computer and information technologies and ecology a dedicated conservationist and outdoors enthusiast an accomplished musician piano organ and vocal an outstanding teacher and caring mentor a deeply spiritual and religious person a devoted family man a loyal and caring friend and an unabashed punster Nevertheless the hallmarks of his life were devotion to excellence service teaching and mentoring The excellence component speaks for itself with his mastery of so many different scientific and technical areas but it also involves his accomplishment as a musician even to the extent that he became a certified piano tuner in part to better understand the qualities of the instrument The service component speaks to his always going forth and doing good and going the extra mile while doing so It applied to his career work his volunteer activities his teaching and mentoring and his interpersonal relationships with everyone The teaching and mentoring component is deeply intertwined with the service component but also speaks to his real devotion to helping others understand often difficult and complex processes or concepts He had a wonderful ability to present concepts in a variety of ways in order to ensure comprehension Root s teaching was enhanced by his Job like patience Give a man fish and you feed him for a day Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime was one of Root s favorite sayings Root s mentoring activities were one of many examples of his practicing the Golden Rule In an age when most people s lives are remembered by the size of the footprints they leave Root chose to tread lightly While Root s tender mark is upon the hearts of those he touched with his gentle spirit the mark of his professional endeavors is nevertheless writ large across the landscapes he helped conserve Philip Guss Philip Guss passed away at home in Reston Virginia on January 4 2004 He was 83 years old Guss retired from the US Geological Survey USGS in January 1995 as program manager for Data Acquisition with the National Cartographic Information Center NCIC responsible for collecting organizing and disseminating information concerning the

Daniel Ezra Guss Paul Frederick Hopkins 26 May 1955 29 July 2003 Live to ski ski to live On July 29 2003 our community lost a distinguished colleague a devoted family man and a good friend in Paul Frederick Hopkins At the age of 48 Paul died suddenly after collapsing on campus Paul was born May 26 1955 in Tarryville Connecticut and graduated in 1977 with a BS degree in Forestry with high distinction from the University of Maine at Orono In 1979 he joined the Faculty of Environmental Resources and Forest Engineering at the State University of New York College of Environmental Science and Forestry SUNY ESF as an assistant professor Paul received his MS in photogrammetry and remote sensing from ESF in 1980 He took a leave of absence from 1984 to 1986 to work on his PhD in Civil and Environment Engineering digital photogrammetry and remote sensing at the University of Wisconsin Madison after which he returned to ESF Paul was granted tenure in 1987 and completed his PhD in 1992 In 1993 he was appointed director of ESF s Council for Geospatial Modeling and Analysis which coordinates cross disciplinary activities related to mapping and GIS Paul was promoted to associate professor in 1994 and then full professor in 1999 With regard to Paul s professional career Tom Lillesand writes I first met Paul some 25 year ago when I was on the faculty at the SUNY College of Environmental Science and Forestry He was just starting graduate school at that time but it was clear that he had a passion for photogrammetry and remote sensing With time this passion came to include teaching research and substantial professional service Paul s research contributions were equally broad and impressive His PhD research here at Wisconsin dealt with dynamic modeling for photogrammetric processing of SPOT satellite imagery which was consistent with his keen interest in the geometric and radiometric integrity of remotely sensed data Through the years Paul made substantial contributions particularly in the area of the application of airborne and satellite imagery to forest management He received support for his research program from multiple sources e g US Forest Service National Science Foundation and state and county agencies Paul was currently involved in a NOAA funded project that was using remote sensing to study cyanobacteria in the Great Lakes and was directing a NASA funded project that considered technical and policy issues in using remote sensing for forest management In recent years he directed a project that studied the application of radar imagery for forest classification and he was involved in numerous projects considering the application of GIS to a range of areas Paul derived great pleasure in communicating the benefits of the mapping sciences to anyone who would listen He was able and willing to teach everything from elementary surveying and map interpretation to remote sensing and GIS at levels from undergraduate through advanced graduate Paul made frequent presentations and encouraged his students to present papers and posters at conferences symposia workshops and meetings including those hosted by ASPRS CNY ASPRS and the American societies of Agricultural Engineering Fisheries Foresters and others He was particularly proud of the work he directed at ESF through the NASA funded Affiliated Research Center a program focused on the exploration and development of a broad range of commercial applications of remote sensing and related geospatial technologies Through this center Paul was able to work with a range of people to help them to better use imagery and spatial information Paul was also a good friend to ASPRS and a member since 1977 At the National level his service included chairmanship of the Strategic Planning and Membership Committees and core and charter membership in the Electronic Communications Committee He ran for Vice President in 1993 was the National Director from the Central New York CNY Region from 1987 to 1993 and served on the Executive Committee from 1989 to 1993 Paul was vice president of the CNY Region twice President and a long time member of the Region Council He contributed original research and other articles to PE RS and recruited many students and professionals to the Society Paul helped establish and direct the New York State GIS Conference of which CNY ASPRS is a co sponsor Paul was also instrumental in establishing the William Johnson Memorial Fund along with Bill s parents Bill and Paul were good friends and together they played an important role as part of the ESF support that has helped sustain the CNY Region through the years Paul was a 20 year member of the Plymouth Congregational Church UCC and a dedicated Boy Scout leader He was a Merit Badge Counselor for the Hiawatha Council for skiing orienteering surveying forestry and environmental science Paul would often talk about the many Boy Scout trips he attended with his sons Eric and Ryan including trips to Philmont Scout Ranch and the National Jamboree An avid hiker and backpacker Paul was also a sports fan Even when the boys were young Paul and his wife Chris would pack up all their baby equipment including coolers to go watch a Syracuse Chiefs game Eric and Ryan have both grown up to be fine baseball players even pretty good pitchers Paul always made the time to get to as many of their games as possible He was proud of their accomplishments and abilities even when they lost He made sure we all knew their latest statistics and bragged about their deeds Of course Paul was also thrilled when his favorite basketball team the SU Orangemen finally became NCAA National Champions this year a dream for 25 years But perhaps Paul s greatest legacy is the example he set as a devoted husband father and friend Those who knew and worked with Paul understood that priorities would be arranged in winter to accommodate his family s weekly ski outings on the local hills His email signature Live to Ski Ski to Live was not simply about skiing but reflected Paul s philosophy of life You soon realized that he integrated the separate parts of his life outdoors scouts mapping work students family and skiing Paul opened his life to those outside of his family and always made others welcome The Hopkins house was often filled with Paul s friends and graduate students sharing a meal playing pool or just talking Family work and community he lived each aspect of his life to the fullest successfully intertwining all his time talents and devotions We hope you will take a moment to remember Paul his integrity kindness and gentlemanly demeanor Paul is survived by his wife Christine M Hopkins his sons Eric and Ryan Hopkins his parents Ronald and Joyce Hopkins of Searsport MA
