28 August - 4 September 2019

This webinar series will build on the knowledge and skills previously developed in ARSET SAR trainings. Presentations and demonstrations will focus on agriculture and flood applications. Participants will learn to characterize floods with Google Earth Engine. Participants will also learn to analyze synthetic aperture radar (SAR) for agricultural applications, including retrieving soil moisture and identifying crop types.

Relevant UN Sustainable Development Goals:

  • Target 13.1: Strength resilience & adaptive capacity to climate-related hazards and natural disasters in all countries
  • SDG 2: End hunger, achieve food security and improved nutrition and promote sustainable agriculture    

Learning Objectives: By the end of this training, attendees will be able to:

  • analyze SAR data in Google Earth Engine
  • generate soil moisture analyses
  • identify different types of crops

Course Format: This webinar series will consist of two, two-hour parts. Each part will include a presentation on the theory of the topic followed by a demonstration and exercise for attendees. This training is also available in Spanish. Please visit the Spanish registration page for more information.
