This webinar will bring the campaign to the GLOBE North America Region with a focus on activities that can assist students and teachers, from all across GLOBE, with their tree, land cover, greenings, and carbon cycle research, as part of the Trees Around the GLOBE Student Research Campaign. We will have a guest speaker from the United States Forest Service (USFS) with a discussion on tree canopy cover layers and how the USFS maps and monitors tree canopy cover across the United States. Peder Nelson will highlight the current NASA GLOBE Land Cover Challenge 2022: Land Cover in a Changing Climate. The webinar will also feature an open forum, with three breakout rooms, to discuss any ideas, concerns, and questions regarding the upcoming Year 5 of the campaign and student research for GLOBE IVSS 2023.
