NASA scientists will present the latest data and images from Earth observing satellites and discuss changes in the Earth's climate during two events at Howard Community College in March 2012. The Climate Change Initiative of Howard County, the Howard County Government, NASA, and the college are co-sponsoring these forums. Topics will include the latest findings on how climate changes impact the Earth's atmosphere, ice, oceans, and land.
A NASA Goddard Space Flight Center scientist will discuss several aspects of climate change as measured from satellites. Audience participation and Q&A will follow. The event will be held at Duncan Hall, Kittleman Room (DH-100). Interactive NASA exhibits and activities start at 7:00pm.
Three NASA Goddard Space Flight Center scientists will present results from satellite observations and their impact on climate. Following these presentations, a panel will discuss the implications of climate change, review the status national policy, and take questions from the audience. The panel will consist of the three NASA scientists and representatives from the Environmental Defense Fund, the American Geophysical Union, and U.S. Senator Ben Cardin's office. This event will be held at the Rouse Company Foundation Student Hall (RCF 400)
Exhibits, before and after each event, will include representatives from NASA Earth science public outreach, HCC clubs, and local organizations.
