The Balmoral Group, with the support of NASA’s Applied Sciences Ecological Forecasting Program, will be hosting workshops in each of the five Gulf Coast states this winter. We have partnered with The Nature Conservancy for this project, and the goal is to advance how Earth Observations can be used to inform Ecosystem Service assessments in the context of coastal resource management and planning. The workshops will be an opportunity for training in Ecosystem Service evaluation methods and data sources, and they will be an opportunity for information gathering that informs future NASA research and science missions. We expect a diverse group of participants, including state and local government personnel, scientists, engineers, and others working on coastal management and planning.
