    The Earth Archive Project

    The Earth Archive Project

    Guest: Chris Fisher, Archaeologist Colorado State University

    Intro: It is no secret that our Earth is changing, but it may be faster than you’d think! What if we had the ability to see what parts of the Earth were changing day-by-day? How much of the Southeast U.S. coast is shrinking due to sea level rise? Or how raging wildfires in California are changing our landscapes? Well, there is a group of scientists who are taking the initiative on this! My guest today is archaeologist Chris Fisher, who is the co-owner of the Earth Archive Project. This project will use LIDAR technology to take high-quality imagery of the most vulnerable places on our planet and help preserve them for future generations.
