Meet the Forest Scientists

About Meet the Forest Scientists

Forests regulate our climate and provide us with fresh water, medicines and food. They are extremely diverse and home to many different species, but as the human population grows they are under increasing pressure. Join Dr Murray Collins from The University of Edinburgh to discover the latest satellite technology that is being used to measure deforestation. You’ll see images taken by European Space Agency satellites and photographs from tropical forests around the world, as well as finding out how satellite data and virtual reality technology is being used in forest management in Scotland.

These activities are available as a drop-in experience as part of your visit to Dynamic Earth between 10am and 4pm. These activities are included with admission to the Dynamic Earth exhibition and are free for Explorer Pass holders.

Age 5+

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Meet the Forest Scientists are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
