08 February: ENSO Phase III Science and Research Webinar: “Deadly Landslides Strike California”

ENSO Phase III Webinar, Landslides shareable

Why is NASA studying landslides from space? Join the Phase III GLOBE ENSO (El Niño Southern Oscillation) Student Research Campaign Science and Research Webinar on Thursday, 08 February (at 8:00 p.m. EST): “Deadly Landslides Strike California.”

During this webinar, participants will take a closer look at the recent landslides that have occurred in California. Dr. Dalia Kirschbaum, a NASA scientist who is an expert on landslides, will explain how and why landslides are studied from space. Dr. Tom Farr, a NASA geologist who works at NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL), whose home was affected by recent mudslides, will explain the causality of this natural disaster, as well as its impact on the community. During the collaboration time, participants will discuss some of the GLOBE protocols that can be used to predict these natural disasters and to describe their impact on the environment.

And, on Wednesday, 28 February (at 4:00 p.m. EST), join in the next Phase III Short Observation and Data Analysis (SODA) Webinar #3: “SODA, Live from New Jersey, USA.” During this webinar, participants will hear from GLOBE students at Medford Memorial Middle School in Medford, New Jersey, USA. The students will discuss their GLOBE protocol data collection, data analysis, and research to explore the guiding question: “How do wind speed and wind direction affect the chemistry of rainwater?” To join this webinar, click here.
