Today (08 December) Trees Around the GLOBE Student Research Campaign Webinar: “Trees are Land Cover!”
The Trees Around the GLOBE Student Research Campaign webinar: “Trees are Land Cover!” will be held on Tuesday, 08 December, at 02:00 p.m. EST (07:00 p.m. UTC).
Did you know that all the trees that you see in your local environment are all part of the local land cover? Land cover data helps us understand how much of or what part of local regions to global locations are covered by landforms, trees and forests, wetlands, impervious surfaces, agriculture, and other land and water types. This webinar will feature Peder Nelson, Researcher and Instructor and GLOBE Observer Land Cover Science Lead, from Oregon State University. Peder will discuss the importance of land cover observations from the ground and space and focus on why trees are part of land cover.
If you are interested in joining the webinar, please send an email to Campaign Lead, Brian Campbell.
