Title

  • Honey Bees, Satellites and Climate Change

Summary

  • Life isn't what it used to be for honey bees in Maryland. The latest changes in their world were discussed by NASA scientist Wayne Esaias, a biological oceanographer with NASA Goddard Space Flight Center, in an illustrated lecture sponsored by the Library's Science, Technology and Business Division. At Goddard, Esaias has examined the role of marine productivity in the global carbon cycle using visible satellite sensors. In his personal life, Esaias is a beekeeper. Lately, he has begun melding his interest in bees with his professional expertise in global climate change. Esaias has observed that the period when nectar is available in central Maryland has shifted by one month due to local climate change. He is interested in bringing the power of global satellite observations and models to bear on the important but difficult question of how climate change will impact bees and pollination.
