CAT Scans for Trees: The Role of Forests in Combating Climate Change
Researcher Robert E. Marra, Ph.D., of the Connecticut Agricultural Experiment Station, will discuss how he uses tomography in his tree research at Great Mountain Forest to assess the extent of internal decay in northern hardwoods. He will also interpret why it matters to our understanding of the role that forests play in combating climate change. The lecture begins at 3:00 p.m., and will be followed by a demonstration of tomography by Dr. Marra. Stay for a wine and cheese reception afterward.
The publicity for this program is offered through a partnership of the Connecticut Forest & Park Association (CFPA) and the Great Mountain Forest. Great Mountain Forest is over 6,000 acres of actively managed forest land. The Great Mountain Forest has a mission of education, research and recreation under a sustainable forest management program now and for future generations.
