ORNL DAAC invites ESA Participants to watch contributions to the session OOS 14: Harnessing the Data Revolution: Insights into Ecosystem Dynamics Enabled by New Instruments on the International Space Station". Want to learn more? Join contributing authors and ORNL DAAC's own Michele Thornton who will moderate at a live Q&A on Tuesday, August 4 from 1-1:30 p.m. Eastern (10-10:30 a.m. Pacific).
This session features the following Presentations:
Josh Fisher: The International Space Station as a key platform to synergize observations of fundamental ecosystem properties
Andy Hudak: Correcting for spatial bias in aboveground biomass estimated at the project level from forest inventory plot datasets contributed by stakeholders using spatially unbiased space-borne lidar datasets
Susanne Wiesner: Using remote sensing data to quantify greenhouse gas balances of agricultural systems
Jacob Malcomb: Topographic controls on temperate forest structure and evapotranspiration in complex terrain
Ecologists have an unprecedented opportunity to take advantage of data collected by new ecologically-focused instruments that are co-located on the International Space Station. NASA’s Global Ecosystem Dynamics Investigation (GEDI), Ecosystem Spaceborne Thermal Radiometer Experiment on Space Station (ECOSTRESS), and Orbiting Carbon Observatory-3 (OCO-3) instruments, as well as the German Space Agency (DLR) Earth Sensing Imaging Spectrometer (DESIS), are collecting a variety of parameters at high spatial resolutions and coordinated temporal acquisition at a near-global scale.This session is organized by Alison Boyer of the University of Tennessee.
