Today (15 September): Trees Around the GLOBE Campaign Webinar “Kicking Off Year 3"
The Trees Around the GLOBE Student Research Campaign webinar “Kicking Off Year 3 with Tree Height Research Using Satellites and Ground-Based Instruments: The Importance of Tree and Vegetation Research to Help Us Understand our Changing Planet,” will be held on Tuesday, 15 September, at 2:00 p.m. ET (6:00 p.m. UTC).
This is the first “featured science talk” of Year 3 (September 2020 through September 2021) of the campaign. Dr. Nancy Glenn, a researcher from Boise State University, the University of New South Wales, and an ICESat-2 (Ice, Cloud, and land Elevation Satellite 2) Mission Early Adopter, will discuss her research with trees and tree canopy height, reinforcing the importance of research for students, and why tree height and land cover are important to helping us understand our planet. Dr. Glenn will also discuss the use of satellite data from ICESat-2 and Landsat, showcasing how this satellite data can be used in research.
If you are interested in joining the webinar, please send an email to Campaign Lead, Brian Campbell.
