Connecticut Land Conservation Conference
March 25, 2023, Wesleyan University, Middletown
Usdan Center, 45 Wyllys Avenue, Middletown.
Using Remote Technologies to Understand and Monitor Climate Change Impacts
Climate change is impacting the lands, waterways and many of the ecosystems that land trusts in Connecticut are working hard to protect. The scale and pace of these changes can be difficult to understand and track on the ground, but understanding these changes is important for evaluating risks and making land protection and stewardship decisions. Remote monitoring technologies such as satellite imaging and other aerial imagery have advanced in ways that increase their utility for monitoring climate change impacts. They have also become more accessible and affordable for land trusts. Join staff from the Land Trust Alliance Land to understand current remote monitoring technologies and how they can be used by your land trust for decision-making, monitoring, and communicating climate change impacts and actions on the landscape.
