Horn Point Lab’s Science After Hours: Satellites & Drones: Water Color & Water Quality

On Thursday, May 17, at 5:30 p.m., in the Easton branch of the Talbot County Free Library, Dr. Greg Silsbe of Horn Point Lab will present a program entitled “Satellites and Drones: Linking Water Color to Water Quality.”

Every day so called “earth-observing satellites,” operated by NASA and other international space agencies, pass over the Chesapeake Bay region and acquire millions of specialized high-resolution images. These data are often freely available and, with a touch of science, can be used to track changes in land use and air and water quality at regional to global scales. With the advent and rapid commercialization of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs or drones), scientists are retrofitting these devices to emulate the types of measurements made from space.  Dr. Silsbe’s talk will explore the technology and science of this rapidly growing field.

All library programs are free and open to the public.  Patrons do not need to pre-register to attend this lecture.  For more information, please call the library at 410-822-1626, or visit www.tcfl.org.
