Advanced webinar on methods in using NASA remote sensing for health applications

01 - 15 June 2017

Organisation: National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA)

Location: Online training/webinar

Course Overview:

Every year, environmental conditions adversely affect the health of millions of people. Environmental data can be combined with public health information to predict and monitor potentially dangerous environmental health events, such as disease outbreaks, harmful algal blooms, excessive heat, airborne allergens, and low air quality.

In this advanced webinar, participants will learn how to access and apply NASA data relevant to public health. The webinar will include a presentation on tools available for evaluating the relationship between environmental conditions and health outcomes, followed by lectures on pollen dispersal and heat stress mitigation. Two homework assignments will give participants an opportunity to review and practice what they have learned during the presentations.

The course will have weekly, one-hour live broadcasts available twice a day at either 10:00-11:00 or 15:00-16:00 EDT (UTC-4).

Remote sensing of Land Indicators for Sustainable Development Goal 15

20 - 22 June 2017

Organisation: National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA)

Location: Online training/webinar

Course Overview:

The United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are a series of 17 goals set to end global poverty and protect the planet, with the aim of achieving successes by 2030. The SDGs cover topics from global health, climate change, economic inequality, sustainability, poverty, and more. This training will focus on addressing SDG 15, whose focus is to "protect, restore and promote sustainable use of terrestrial ecosystems, sustainably manage forests, combat desertification, and halt and reverse land degradation and halt biodiversity loss."

In this webinar, participants will learn how to access and apply satellite data relevant to land indicators, such as estimating total forest area and forest change. The webinar will include an overview of the SDGs, as well as an introduction to image classification, change detection, and accuracy assessments.

The course will have three one-hour live broadcasts at either 13:00-14:00 or 22:00-23:00 EDT (UTC-4). The session is broadcast twice per day to allow for international participation.

Advanced Webinar: Remote Sensing of Drought

12 - 19 July 2017

Organisation: National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA)

Location: Online Webinar

Workshop Overview:

Prolonged drought can result in economic, environmental, and health-related impacts. In this webinar, participants will learn how to monitor drought conditions and assess impacts on the ecosystem using precipitation, soil moisture, and vegetation data. The training will provide an overview of drought classification, as well as an introduction to web-based tools for drought monitoring and visualization. Lectures will be followed by hands-on demonstrations of data access and visualization.

In this webinar, participants will learn how remote sensing can be used for drought monitoring, how to acquire remotely-sensed imagery and products for drought and analyse drought data and calculate anomalies within a geospatial software.

The course will have two, 2-hour sessions on Wednesday, 12 July and Wednesday, 19 July at either 12:00-14:00 p.m. or 21:00-23:00 p.m. EDT (UTC-4). The session is broadcast twice per day to allow for international participation.

River Basin Management 2017

19 - 21 July 2017

Organisation: Wessex Institute

Location: Prague, Czech Republic

Event Overview:

River Basin Management 2017 is the 9th Conference in the series which marks the growing international interest in the planning, design and management of river basin systems.

River Basin Management includes all aspects of Hydrology, Ecology, Environmental Management, Flood Plains and Wetlands. Riverine systems are coming under increasing pressure due to anthropological and natural causes. Prominent amongst the problems affecting them is water scarcity and quality, which requires the development of improved methods for better river management.

Changes in the landscape, use of the land and climate conditions lead to a continuous revaluation of river basin management objectives. This requires the development of better measuring tools as well as the use of increasingly accurate computer software.

The objective of this series of conferences is to bring together practitioners and researchers in academia and industry in the hope that their interaction will foster mutual understanding and lead to better solutions for river basins.
