Join the 14 January Trees Around the GLOBE Campaign Webinar “How Much Water Do trees Use and Need? NASA’s new ECOSTRESS Mission on the ISS”
The Trees Around the GLOBE Student Research Campaign webinar “How Much Water Do Trees Use and Need? NASA’s New ECOSTRESS Mission on the International Space Station,” will be held on Tuesday, 14 January (2:00 p.m. EST/7:00 p.m. UTC).
During the webinar, participants will hear Dr. Joshua Fisher, from the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California, USA, talk about how the new NASA ECOSTRESS Mission monitors trees. NASA launched the ECOSTRESS (ECOsystem Spaceborne Thermal Radiometer Experiment) Mission to the International Space Station (ISS) in 2018. ECOSTRESS measures the temperature of plants, and uses that temperature to determine how much water they are using – and losing – through evapotranspiration, as well as water stress and efficiency. The resolutions of ECOSTRESS enable it to see individual farms, as well as changes throughout the day.
