Meet the Forest Scientists
Saturday 14 — Sunday 15 April
Forests regulate our climate and provide us with fresh water, medicines and food. They are extremely diverse and home to many different species, but as the human population grows they are under increasing pressure. Join Dr Murray Collins from The University of Edinburgh to discover the latest satellite technology that is being used to measure deforestation. You’ll see images taken by European Space Agency satellites and photographs from tropical forests around the world, as well as finding out how satellite data and virtual reality technology is being used in forest management in Scotland.
