"Live from the Field" events are 50-minute events where researchers with three field sites describe their interests and research in 8-minute videos, then participants join a live moderated Q&A session with the researchers. Events are recorded for asynchronous instructional use, and available to all at thevirtualfield.org/virtual-visits/live-from-the-field
In this event, researchers will talk about their work on tracking stocks and changes of forest carbon with remote sensing, soil carbon cycling and soil carbon-climate feedbacks, and measuring and modeling carbon cycle changes. This event is geared toward undergraduate level college students who have taken at least one Biology course, but all are welcome.
“Live from the Field” events are international collaborations led by the Center for Environmental Inquiry that give students virtual field experiences in ecosystems all over the world. Events are informal and open to everyone to generate opportunities to speak with researchers and develop a personal interest in doing research. All are welcome.
