I'm new to C this year and I read the wiki, but I'm still not really understanding what you do in this event? I figured it has something to do with interpreting maps and something with how humans affect the earth, but I'm still not too sure...

I've heard it involves a lot of different stuff, including human impact on the environment and map reading.

You're not helping any, either.

You know, that might be a good idea.

I'll help. It's about satellite imagery. You're asked questions about imaging satellites (like LANDSAT) and given images that you have to interpret. You're also given questions about the human impact on earth, (global warming/climate change) and much of the image interpretation has to do with human impact. For example, you're given two satellite pictures of an area of rain forest in different years and you have to calculate the percent that has been cut down. Or the square miles that a glacier has shrunk. Or asked about what band certain satellite sensors operate on. Or list five sources of greenhouse gases. I recommend knowing your electromagnetic spectrum.
