NOTICE: DR. PIERS SELLERS LECTURE "CREATING THE SCIENCE OF GLOBAL ECOLOGY" HAS BEEN CANCELED AND REPLACED BY DR. GREG ASNER'S LECTURE "EXPLORING AND MANAGING EARTH FROM THE SKY."

Due to unforeseen circumstances, Dr. Piers Sellers can no longer attend the November 2nd lecture "Creating the Science of Global Ecology."

Carnegie Science will instead feature Dr. Greg Asner from our Global Ecology Department in Stanford, California, who will discuss “Exploring and Managing Earth from the Sky.”

Exploring and Managing Earth from the Sky: Human activities are rapidly changing the Earth’s biosphere, calling for innovative ways to measure, monitor and manage ecosystems at large geographic scales. Fortunately, the science and technology landscape is also evolving fast to meet the challenge of better managing the biosphere in the coming decades. This lecture will explain one of the world’s most advanced Earth mapping projects, and how it supports environmental conservation and decision-making around the world.
