NASA ARSET Training: Using NASA Remote Sensing for Disaster Management
NASA remote sensing and modeling resources are useful for managing a variety of disasters – including earthquakes, tsunamis, volcanoes, floods, landslides, wildfires, and oil spills – particularly in regions with very little in situ data. This introductory webinar will provide an overview of NASA remote sensing data and applications for disaster management.
- Four, 1 hour sessions, each held twice a day to allow for national and international participation in different time zones:
- Session A: 11:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. EDT (UTC-4)
- Session B: 6:00 – 7:00 p.m. EDT (UTC-4)
- Sessions will be held every Thursday: June 9, 16, 23, and 30
- A certificate of completion will be provided to participants that attend all four webinars and complete all homework – including the prerequisite assignment.
Participants will become aware of available NASA resources for disaster management, and will learn to access remote sensing observations using covered web tools for local disaster events.
- Fundamentals of Remote Sensing: Session 1
- Homework Assignment, due June 13
National and international entities involved in disaster and water resources management, decision support activities, and relief and humanitarian activities.
