Applications of remote sensing to soil moisture and evapotranspiration

1 - 29 September 2016

Organisation: National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA)

Location: Online training/webinar

Course Overview:

ARSET is offering its first webinar series focused exclusively on soil moisture and evapotranspiration.

Previous ARSET trainings have focused on water resources and mainly addressed remote sensing measurements of precipitation and their applications. But precipitation is only one component of the water cycle. NASA's Soil Moisture Active Passive (SMAP) Satellite Mission is providing new soil moisture data, and modelling frameworks are providing new evapotranspiration data.

This webinar series will help attendees learn about NASA soil moisture and evapotranspiration products and how to access and apply them for water resource management. Over the course of five weeks, attendees will learn how to monitor and manage water resources with techniques learned in training. The series will begin with an introduction to satellite missions and useful data sets. Next, trainers will demonstrate online portals for accessing data. The series will conclude with specific examples of how you can apply the data and modelled data products. The training is targeted at local, regional, state, federal, and international organisations interested in using satellite imagery for decision and policy-making activities.

The course will have five 1 hour sessions every Thursday in September at 11:30 AM EDT Eastern Daylight Time (UTC-4) and 6:00 PM (EDT) Eastern Daylight Time (UTC-4).
