Permafrost Discovery Gateway webinars

The NSF NNA funded Permafrost Discovery Gateway is starting a webinar series on July 22: Charles “Chuck” Abolt, Los Alamos National Lab, will open the first webinar with his presentation “Circumpolar observations of thermokarst pool expansion in high resolution satellite imagery“. The webinar aims to:1) connect the international science community interested in big data remote sensing of permafrost landscapes, and2) provide the Permafrost Discovery Gateway development team with end-user stories (by the presenter and webinar participants), such as what tools the community needs to create and explore big data. For more info and to sign up for the webinar Google Calendar, please visit:
