Monitoring Urban Floods Using Remote Sensing

25 July - 01 August 2018

Organisation: National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA)

Course overview:

Urban flooding is already a major risk for cities. Increasing impervious surface area, inadequate storm water drainage, and aging infrastructure all contribute. As a result, growing urban populations will face a greater risk of flooding from extreme weather events. This webinar series will focus on the components of urban flooding that satellite data can track:

  • extreme precipitation
  • flooding
  • waterlogged and ponded surfaces

Using satellite data allows individuals and organizations to develop better plans for handling floods. This can include developing better early warning techniques, better plans for rescue and relief, and more effective long-term infrastructure planning.

There are 2 identical sessions for this course and are provided twice per day to accommodate an International audience at 09:00-11:00 and 18:00-20:00 EDT (UTC-4).
