Dr. Sydne Record organizes working group for the next generation of NASA data products

Dr. Sydne Record and postdoc John Grady are out in Santa Barbara, CA this week at the National Center for Ecological Analysis and Synthesis. Dr. Record and collaborators from Michigan State Universtiy are leading a working group of 15 scientists from around the USA and internationally to develop recommendations for NASA’s next set of geodiversity data products for biodiversity scientists.

NASA NCEAS Remote Sensing and Biodiversity Working Group

With new funding from NASA Dr. Sydne Record is organizing a working group at the National Center for Ecological Analysis and Synthesis in Santa Barbara, California. The goal of this working group is to identify the spatial and temporal scales of NASA data products that are most relevant to biodiversity scientists. Insights from this working group will inform NASA’s decisions on what Earth science data products to create for widespread dissemination to the public.

There are a couple of spots open in the working group for graduate students, postdocs, or faculty members. For more information, please, go to http://communityecologylab.weebly.com/uploads/3/9/6/3/39633683/zarnetskedahlinrecord_nasa2016summary.pdf .
