Event information

Tuesday, December 7, 2021 @ 1:00pm EST (6:00pm UTC). Looking at the Land Cover and Tree Canopy of the GLOBE Africa Region and the critical need for GLOBE data observations in the Africa Region. Region Focus: Africa. 

This campaign webinar will begin our two-month focus on the GLOBE Africa Region. Beginning with a recorded discussion with GLOBE Africa Regional Coordinator, Mr. Mark Brettenny, we will focus on the importance of taking land cover and tree height observations across Africa, with a focus on data literacy. We will then take a close look at the Global Land Cover Viewer and the Global Forest Canopy Height online tool to focus on how to look at current and past land cover and tree height data in the Africa Region. Following the use of these online tools, we will highlight some useful content from the NASA Eyes on Earth online tool and will have a discussion on the importance of taking multiple observations of land cover and tree height.
