Event description

The Dodd-Walls Centre, in collaboration with The Optical Society of America (OSA) and the American Geophysical Union (AGU), is holding the inaugural workshop of the New Zealand Node of the Global Environmental Measuring and Monitoring (GEMM) network in Wellington on 15th November 2019 at the Royal Society Te Apārangi

The GEMM Network is a collaborative network between groups from diverse backgrounds and skill sets, dedicated to developing new monitoring technologies enabling improved collection of environmental data. The network has nodes spread around the world, each of which concentrates on issues which are of particular importance locally. For example, California's local issues focus on air quality caused by forest fires, while the Canadian node focuses on melting of the permafrost. Their aim is to use the improved data to help inform decision making in response to climate change.

The main objective at this workshop is to define the key issues for New Zealand as the climate changes, and to identify the need for any new instrumentation, to monitor the environment.

When: 15th November 2019 , 10:00am – 6:00pm

Where: The Royal Society Te Apārangi 11 Turnbull St, Thorndon, Wellington

A fee of $25 is requested to cover catering costs (contact shannon.scown@otago.ac.nz for details of concessions for students etc)
