Event information

Tuesday, July 20, 2021 @ 12:00pm EDT (4:00pm UTC): At Ease with the Trees: Preparing for Student Investigations and Research Projects with the Trees Around the GLOBE Student Research Campaign Team, Session I. During this special webinar, participants will be able to work directly, via breakout discussions, with the Trees Around the GLOBE Student Research Campaign team members to focus on several specific research topics for future student projects. These include: “Land Cover and Land Cover Change for Student Research,” GLOBE Tree Height Comparisons with ICESat-2 and GEDI, ”GPM Precipitation Data and How it Affects Trees,” and “What Can We Do to Support Your Plans for Student Research?” During the webinar, each participant will choose which breakout discussion they want to attend. If there are two breakout discussions that you would like to attend, we will also be having Session II on Tuesday, August 10 @ 12:00pm EDT (4:00pm UTC), where we will repeat the special breakout discussions.

During this highly interactive webinar, you will also learn about some specific NASA Missions, including Landsat 9, GEDI, ICESat-2, GPM, and ECOSTRESS, each have a vital alignment to trees and land cover. If you are not able to make it to the annual meeting or want focused preparation time with the Trees Team, this is the webinar for you.
