An Introduction to GEDI Ecosystem LIDAR
Date: 23 September 2021, Thursday
Time: 4pm - 5pm
Speaker: A/ Prof. Hao Tang
The Global Ecosystem Dynamics Investigation (GEDI) programme is an exciting initiative led jointly by NASA and the University of Maryland. Launched in 2018, the programme provides the first high-resolution spaceborne lidar-based dataset for the 3D structure of the Earth's surface. In this talk, A/Prof. Hao Tang introduces us to this novel technology for Earth observation and discusses some of its potential applications for nature-based climate solutions research.
