Trees Around the GLOBE Student Research Campaign May Webinar

Tuesday, May 9, 2023 @ 1:00pm EDT (5:00pm UTC, 7:00pm CEST). The State of Trees – May 2023. Looking at Land Cover and River Deltas with NASA Delta-X Mission, including a Discussion of Global Surface Water, Mangrove Science, and Trees with We Feet.

Join us for the next exciting Trees Around the GLOBE Student Research Campaign webinar to hear Dr. Marc Simard, Senior Research Scientist and Principal Investigator for the NASA Delta-X Mission, at the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California USA. During this webinar, Dr. Simard will discuss how river deltas and their wetlands are drowning as a result of sea level rise and reduced sediment inputs and how the Delta-X mission determines which parts will survive and continue to grow, and which parts will be lost. All of this has a huge impact on our planet's land cover. Following the feature presentation, Peder Nelson will continue the discussion on riparian land cover, with a focus on global surface water and mangroves, all part of the coastal ecosystem. Peter Falcon and Brian Campbell will highlight the importance of airborne campaigns and satellite campaigns, respectively, in the study of land cover and tree science.
