Join 11 November Trees Around the GLOBE Student Research Campaign Webinar “Trees: The Lungs of the Earth”
The Trees Around the GLOBE Student Research Campaign webinar “Trees: The Lungs of the Earth,” will be held on Wednesday, 11 November, at 03:00 p.m. ET (08:00 p.m. UTC).
Trees are the lungs of our planet. Through photosynthesis they take up carbon dioxide and water, and produce oxygen – a process that plays a critical role in the global carbon cycle. During the webinar, participants will hear Dr. Erika Podest, a research scientist with the Carbon Cycle and Ecosystems Group at the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory in California, USA, discuss the carbon cycle, the role of trees in it, and how scientists are using satellite data to better understand these processes. This webinar is part three of the first quarter Year 3 Scaffold Structure, focusing on the science (tree height, greenings, carbon cycle, land cover) of the Trees Around the GLOBE Student Research Campaign.
If you are interested in joining the webinar, please send an email to Campaign Lead, Brian Campbell.
