19 October: Trees Around the GLOBE Campaign Webinar: “A Himalayan Expedition with GISN Member, Yashraj Patil”
Event Time: 11:00 am EDT - 12:00 pm EDT
The Trees Around the GLOBE Student Research Campaign will be hosting the webinar: “A Himalayan Expedition with GISN Member, Yashraj Patil – Looking at The GLOBE Program’s First High Altitude GLOBE Land Cover, Cloud, and Hydrosphere Data” on Tuesday, 19 October, at 11:00 a.m. EDT (03:00 p.m. UTC, 08:30 p.m. IST).
Please join us for this very special webinar featuring Yashraj Patil, a GLOBE International STEM Network (GISN) member. Yashraj will guide participants through his on-site research using GLOBE protocols, in the Himalayas, specifically Ladakh, India. The presentation will feature his observations of land cover, cloud cover, salinity, pH (in areas such as the Saboo Cloudburst Site, Indus-Yarlung Suture Zone, Tso Kar Ramsar Site, and the Puga Geothermal System Site). Through this research, Yashraj compared his data on the ground to data from missions like Landsat, CloudSat, and Meteosat-8. This webinar can serve as a catalyst for others to take local environmental observations and compare them to space-based data. The webinar will also host a discussion on how we might be able to form collaborations of GLOBE students with the lifelong learner community.
