Café Science Dundee: What’s Happening to our Rainforests? @ Medina Bar and Grill

The world’s tropical forests are under increasing pressure, with the fires burning in the Amazon being the latest tragic example. This destruction and degradation of forests has continued for decades, with over half of all tropical forests now having been logged at least once. Those that remain face threats posed by a changing climate and conversion to agricultural plantations.

But how do we know what is actually happening in our rainforests? Using satellites in space and new sensors on the ground we can now see the changes and responses of these fragile ecosystems better than ever before.

Join Dr Mark Cutler (University of Dundee) to explore what we can and cannot see from these new technologies and what this means for the long-term exploitation and conservation of tropical forests across the world.

Join us at Café Science Dundee at our new venue Medina Bar & Grill at 113 Nethergate on Monday 25 November 2019, at 7pm. This is a free event and everyone is welcome. There is no need to book in advance but arrive early to avoid disappointment.

To accompany City Art Centre’s ‘Beneath the Surface’ exhibition, Brian Robertson, curator at Zembla Gallery, will chair a discussion among five of the artists in the exhibition: Michael Craik, Eric Cruikshank, Kenneth Dingwall, Alan Johnston and James Lumsden. This is a unique opportunity to hear these contemporary artists come together to talk about their work.
