Hi all:

Hope everyone’s well! Congratulations to our student e-board president, Jon Rodemann, on his recent award, and former FCE high school student Lisa Goldberg on her publication on global mangrove loss.

Of course, we are all excited about the announcement from NSF of our successful proposal securing our next four years of funding! Be on the lookout for dates and ways to be involved in our Fall Virtual ASM and recurring thematic science meetings to kick off FCE 4.2! Students, please join us for a welcome this Friday (see details below) and share with any new folks in your lab.

Best wishes,
Evelyn and John

Liza Goldberg, a NASA Goddard intern and freshman at Stanford University is working to measure the impact of humans on mangrove forests at the global scale. Using hundreds of thousands of satellite images acquired between 2000 - 2016 of mangrove forests all around the world, Liza was able to identify the location and extent of mangrove loss. Take a closer look at her work at the Global Mangrove Loss Drivers website she created.
