Storm Beck is completing master’s degrees in sustainable forest management and civil engineering at Oregon State University. His scientific interests include transportation analysis of tactical harvest scheduling plan (including non-conventional forest products) development and the use of remote sensing technology to provide engineering records of forest transportation networks.
His work within the NARA project includes developing the application of LiDAR data to map road networks and analytic tools for analyzing vehicle performance on forest road networks. He co-authored and co-presented a talk intitled “Transport of Non-conventional Forest Products” and prepared vehicle tracking simulations for various vehicles transporting non-conventional forest products.
Storm has bachelor’s degrees in civil engineering and sustainable forest management from Oregon State University. He has assisted teaching laboratories for GIS and Forest Engineering Applications and Forest Operations and Design courses. In 2011, Storm was an engineering intern and completed land surveyor training.
