Observing Our Changing Planet from Space

Friday, February 2nd, 2018, 6:00 PM
Location: The Hill School, 130 South Madison Street , Middleburg, Virginia

Over five decades of observing Earth from space has revealed the effects of our changing climate, from severe droughts to rising sea levels to more powerful storms. Climate change will affect all of our lives, but there is still time to act to avert the worst consequences of rising global temperatures.

Come hear Dr. Ellen Renee Stofan, who recently served as a NASA chief scientist, serving as principal advisor to NASA Administrator Charles Bolden on the agency’s science programs and science-related strategic planning and investments.

Other positions have included serving as a senior scientist at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, CA, including chief scientist for NASA’s New Millennium Program, deputy project scientist for the Magellan Mission to Venus, and experiment scientist for SIR-C, an instrument that provided radar images of Earth on two shuttle flights in 1994.

Dr. Stofan holds master and doctorate degrees in geological sciences from Brown University in Providence, R.I., and a bachelor’s degree from the College of William and Mary in Williamsburg, VA. Her research work has focused on the geology of Venus, Mars, Saturn’s moon Titan, and Earth.

The talk will take place on February 2 @ 6:00pm - 7:30pm and is hosted by the Land Trust of Virginia and Goose Creek Association. Register Online >>
