Event information

Tuesday, January 17, 2023 @ 10:30am ET (3:30pm UTC, 4:30pm CET). The State of Trees - January 2023: Setting a Baseline and a Look Back at the November 2022 International Forest Conference in Slovenia. 


The 53rd webinar for the Trees Around the GLOBE Student Research Campaign will be the next step in getting students comfortable with all the data accessible for student research. By establishing a baseline for student research, we will be able to focus much of this webinar on how students locate and decide what trees to observe and include in their research. This concept falls on last month's presentation by Teacher, Deanna Danke and her students, who showcased this exact method. Our featured presentation will be by Zoran Petrov, GLOBE Slovenia Country Coordinator. Zoran will recap the November 2022 International Forest Conference held in Slovenia and will discuss how he has made GLOBE Slovenia a GLOBE Powerhouse in just the two years that Slovenia has been an official GLOBE country. Using all this information, we will delve into the idea looking at change over time, especially in those countries that are relatively new to GLOBE and don't have a lot of observations in the GLOBE database for their country. Peder Nelson will highlight the online tools that can assist with this, including the Global Land Analysis & Discovery (GLAD) Global Tree Height Map.
