Course Overview: Polluted water influences all aspects of life, including people, animals, and the environment. NASA satellite observations provide near real-time information about water quality. This freely available data can help decision-makers in their work. Satellite data can have applications for managing drinking water, public health, and fisheries.
This webinar series will help attendees perform advanced image processing of satellite data. Attendees will also learn about using satellites to track indicators of harmful algal blooms. This will include monitoring water temperature and chlorophyll-a concentrations. Attendees can also use this information for reporting around UN SDG 6.
Sessions will be held on Wednesdays, from 5 to 19 September 2018. One session will be broadcast in English 09:00-11:00 EDT (UTC-4) and one in Spanish (16:00-18:00 EDT, UTC-4).
