Saving the planet: March 6 Science Café highlights a geospatial perspective

Our ability to help create a more sustainable living environment on Earth is challenged by ever-increasing threats associated with climate change and related dynamics associated with water availability, food supplies, deforestation, loss of biodiversity and land degradation.

Duane Nellis, Ph.D., will discuss "Remote Sensing and Geospatial Analysis for Helping Save Our Earth” on Wednesday, March 6, at 5 p.m., as part of OHIO’s spring 2024 lineup for the Science Café series. The event will be held at the Baker Center’s Front Room and will be available to stream via YouTube.

Remote sensing and geospatial technologies are playing a key role in our ability to monitor environmental change in various aspects of our Earth system dynamics. Nellis will discuss ongoing developments in remote sensing and geospatial analysis for monitoring and understanding the dynamics of environmental change.

Nellis is President Emeritus of Ohio University and trustee professor in Geography.  His research has focused primarily on the applications of remote sensing and geospatial techniques for monitoring environmental change. 

Free coffee coupons will be provided for the first 50 people at the Front Room, sponsored by the Ohio University Research Division and Sigma Xi.
