Event information

Tuesday, October 19, 2021 @ 11:00am EST (3:00pm UTC, 8:30pm IST). A Himalayan Expedition with GISN Member, Yashraj Patil: Looking at the GLOBE Program’s First High Altitude GLOBE Land Cover, Cloud, and Hydrosphere Data. 

Please join us for this very special webinar featuring Yashraj Patil, a GLOBE International STEM Network (GISN) member. Yashraj will guide us through his on-site research using GLOBE protocols, in the Himalayas, specifically Ladakh, India. Featured will be his observations of land cover, cloud cover, salinity, pH in areas such as the Saboo Cloudburst Site, Indus-Yarlung Suture Zone, Tso Kar Ramsar Site, and the Puga Geothermal System Site. Through this research, Yashraj compared his data on the ground, to data from missions like Landsat, CloudSat, and Meteosat-8. This webinar can serve as a catalyst for others to take local environmental observations and compare them to space-based data. The webinar will also host a discussion on how we might be able to form collaborations of GLOBE students with the lifelong learner community.
