Trees Around the GLOBE Campaign Webinars

Tuesday, October 11, 2022 @ 2:00pm EDT (6:00pm UTC). Year 5 Kickoff: The importance of trees and land cover, student research, and the NASA GLOBE Trees Challenge 2022: "Trees in a Changing Climate." This webinar will serve as the starting point for Year 5 of the Trees round the GLOBE Student Research Campaign. During the webinar, the campaign team will focus on three guiding research questions, discuss the importance of taking tree height and land cover measurements, highlight upcoming events like the 2022 Pecora Conference and the NASA GLOBE Trees Challenge 2022: Trees in a Changing Climate. We invite all students and teachers to attend this kickoff webinar and learn about how we will structure Year 5 of the campaign for guiding student research.
