Event Description

"Google Earth Mountaintop Removal Talk" 
Wednesday, April 4, 7pm, Ball Hall Auditorium 
Presenter:  Matt Helper, of Southern Appalachian Mountain Stewards 
The creators of Google Earth have worked with Appalachian academics and activists to use satellite photography to create audio-visual imagery of the effects of mountaintop removal coal mining in southern Appalachia.  This mining technique permanently alters landforms, as visible from space.  
Helper has a graduate degree in mapping from Appalachian State University, and he specializes in mapping watershed disturbance.  He will present watershed mapping images, along with the Google Earth satellite imagery.
Sponsored by ECO (Environmental Conservation Organization), an ETSU student group.  More more info contact
