Join the Trees Around the GLOBE Student Research Campaign Team and Dr. Ben Hamlington, Research Scientist in the Sea Level and Ice Group, in the Earth Sciences Section at the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California USA as we discuss the NASA SWOT Mission. Learn about NASA's first global survey of Earth's surface water, providing data for clean air and water, extreme events, and long-term environmental changes. We will discuss how this mission aligns to an upcoming GLOBE Challenge focusing on water edges and land cover. We will finish the webinar with a recap of the Results from the One-Week Tree Height and Land Cover Paired Observations Intensive Observation Period.
