Join Today's (07 December) Webinar: “Looking at the Land Cover and Tree Canopy and the Critical Need for GLOBE Data Observations in the Africa Region”
The Trees Around the GLOBE Student Research Campaign will be hosting the webinar: “Looking at the Land Cover and Tree Canopy of the GLOBE Africa Region and the critical need for GLOBE data observations in the Africa Region. Region Focus: Africa” on Tuesday, 07 December, at 01:00 p.m. EST (06:00 p.m. UTC).
This campaign webinar will begin our two-month focus on the GLOBE Africa Region. Beginning with a recorded discussion with GLOBE Africa Regional Office Coordinator, Mark Brettenny, we will focus on the importance of taking land cover and tree height observations across Africa, with a focus on data literacy. Participants will then take a close look at the Global Land Cover Viewer and the Global Forest Canopy Height online tool in order to focus on how to look at current, and past, land cover and tree height data in the Africa Region. Following the use of these online tools, useful content from the NASA Eyes on Earth online tool will be highlighted, and there will be discussion focused on the importance of taking multiple observations of land cover and tree height.
If you are interested in joining the webinar, please send an email to Campaign Lead, Brian Campbell. To learn more about the Trees Around the GLOBE Student Research Campaign, click here.
