This month’s panel will discuss the topic “Food, Fires, Forests and Floods: NASA Earth Science Applications Making a
Difference at Home and Abroad”. NASA Earth Sciences play a valuable role to improve lives in application areas such
as agriculture, forestry, fire management, flood response, and air quality.

Join three Earth scientists from NASA Goddard’s Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, MD as they share stories showing
how they apply their research in hydrology, precipitation, landslide forecasting, ecology, and forest degradation to help
improve decision making and keep people safe around the world.

Panelists will be:
Dr. Dalia B. Kirschbaum, Research Physical Scientist in the Hydrological Sciences Lab at NASA Goddard Space Flight Center;
Dr. Douglas Morton, Earth scientist at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center and an Adjunct Professor at the University of Maryland;
