<p>The featured speaker for this Fuller Science for Nature Symposium is John Amos, founder and president of SkyTruth. SkyTruth is a West Virginia-based non-profit that uses satellites, big data, and crowdsourcing to promote conservation and mitigate environmental impacts from human activity. For the past 12 years they have tracked landscape transformations from mining and drilling, in 2010 they used satellite images to expose the real size of the Deepwater Horizon disaster in the Gulf of Mexico, and now they are using satellite-acquired data to tackle the global problem of illegal, unregulated, and unreported (IUU) commercial fishing. But they need more people to keep a watchful eye on the globe, so they are working to empower everyone to use these same technologies and be "eyes in the sky" for conservation and environmental protection. Hear how the skytruthing movement is bringing people together from all over the world to look at the planet, and our impact on it, from a new perspective.</p><p>John Amos is an expert in the use of satellite images and other remote sensing data to understand and communicate local, regional and global environmental issues. Educated as a geologist at Cornell University (BS) and the University of Wyoming (MS), he spent 10 years applying image processing, image analysis, and digital mapping techniques to conduct environmental, exploration and resource assessment studies for the energy and mining industries and government entities.</p><p>Pre-registration required. Lecture is followed by a reception at 5:30 pm.</p>
