More than a year into the COVID-19 pandemic, partial and full lockdown measures worldwide continue to drastically alter how we interact socially, economically and politically with each other. These altered behaviors have had unmistakable environmental consequences. In this webinar, we'll explore how scientists are using Earth-observing satellites to monitor the impacts of this unprecedented public health crisis on our planet's natural resources. Relevant instructional activities will also be included.
