Event information

Have you ever wondered how precipitation impacts the kinds of trees and the land cover found in different locations? Ever wonder how different regions might be impacted by climate change? During this presentation by Dorian Janney, you will learn about and be invited to join an on-going project to look at the potential impacts of climate change on trees and land cover around the world. Project participants will share a tree and land cover observation from one location, and easily get the last 20 years of precipitation data for that location from NASA’s Global Precipitation Measurement (GPM) mission. These “Tree Stories” will be added to our growing “Telling Our Tree Stories” StoryMap. During this project, participants will also learn about climate models and how NASA’s Earth science missions are using a variety of Earth observations and ground-based data to build predictive models to help us anticipate how climate change will impact different regions around the world.
