Live from the Field

April 1 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Remote Sensing of Growth & Diversity

“Live from the Field” events are part of The Virtual Field, an international collaboration prompted by the pandemic to give students virtual field experiences in ecosystems all over the world. Bring researchers into your classroom and give students a window into the process of scientific inquiry.

Join the Organization of Biological Field Stations for an informal chat with researchers examining how various forms of remote sensing can be used to study biodiversity and growth.

Marine Ecology Director Hannah Webber will present on using drone technology to distinguish different macroalgae.

Additional guests include Matthew Clark, Sonoma State University, presenting on remote sensing & bioacoustics bird monitoring, and James Whitacre, Carnegie Museum of Natural History, on measuring successional forest growth with drones and photogrammetry John Wenzel, Director, Powdermill Nature Reserve, Carnegie Museum of Natural History, will moderate.

Events are informal and recorded for asynchronous instructional use. All are welcome. For more information: Dr. Claudia Luke, Sonoma State University.
