Event information

How Much Water Do Trees Use and Need? NASA's New ECOSTRESS Mission on the International Space Station. Come hear Dr. Joshua Fisher, from the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California, talk about how the new NASA ECOSTRESS Mission monitors trees. NASA launched the ECOSTRESS mission to the International Space Station 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 the water stress and efficiency. The resolutions of ECOSTRESS enable it to see individual farms as well as changes throughout the day.
