11 January: “Looking at Trees Across Africa with a Special Presentation on the ‘Unexpectedly Large Count of Trees in the Western African Sahara and Sahel’” Webinar
Event Time: 11:00 am EST - 12:00 pm EST
The Trees Around the GLOBE Student Research Campaign will be hosting the webinar: “Looking at Trees Across Africa with a Special Presentation on the ‘Unexpectedly Large Count of Trees in the Western African Sahara and Sahel.’ Region Focus: Africa,” on Tuesday, 11 January, at 11:00 a.m. EST (04:00 p.m. UTC).
This is the second campaign webinar focusing on the GLOBE Africa Region. A featured highlight will be a presentation from NASA Goddard Space Flight Center Scientist, Dr. Compton Tucker; and University of Copenhagen Scientist, Dr. Martin Brandt. They will present their ground-breaking research focusing on the dryer areas of the globe that do not have forests that are often discounted for their contribution to the global biome in climate models and other prediction systems. However, their research has shown that over 1.8 billion trees are in the small study area in the West African Sahara and Sahel. The webinar will also feature African countries using the two online tools that the campaign is focusing on during Year 4 of the campaign: Global Land Analysis and Discovery (GLAD) and the Global Land Cover Viewer (GLCV).Event Topics: Webinars
