Event information


What kinds of science questions can we answer with ocean data collected from space? Join us for this Spanish-language webinar on the Aquarius/SAC-D mission to find out.

Take advantage of this opportunity to go behind the scenes of this international mission with Sandra Torrusio, SAC-D principal investigator at CONAE, Monica Rabolli, SAC-D deputy investigator at CONAE, and Jorge Vázquez, oceanographer at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory. After an overview of the development and operations of the satellite, the presenters will lead you on a journey to discover how Aquarius/SAC-D data can be used to map ocean and Earth processes – from the forest landscape of El Impenetrable, and the habitat of an endangered dolphin species, all the way to Antarctica!

Presenters will answer questions submitted by audience members in the last portion of the event. The webinar will be targeted for the general public as well as middle-to-high-school educators.
