Join Jen Fowler, recent Director of University of Montana’s Autonomous Aerial Systems Office, and now Range Safety Officer and UAS Pilot with NASA Langley Research Center on Nov. 11, 2021 at 1 p.m. ET. Jen will highlight how Atmospheric Science researchers collaborate to bolster our understanding of how atmospheric events like solar eclipses and stratospheric gravity waves, together with data on deforestation and climate change, combine to enable life-saving wildfire data modeling and mitigation strategies.
This research, supported by connections to National Research and Education Networks connecting thousands of researchers and data sets across the Americas, is contrasted with on-the-ground research conducted by Angela Maldonado of Entropika, whose work in remote areas of the Colombian and Peruvian Amazon contributes to our evolving understanding of this critical ecosystem. What connects these two seemingly disparate researchers? The understanding that multidisciplinary collaborations, supported by robust connectivity, are the foundation for insights and advances that have the potential to change the trajectory of our common future.
This vast ecosystem of research is enabled by the partnership of national research and education networks across the Americas: CANARIE, Internet2, and RedCLARA. The presentation will be followed by a panel discussion with the three CEOs of the partner networks: Jim Ghadbane, Howard Pfeffer, and Luis Eliécer Cadenas.
