NASA ARSET Training: Using NASA Remote Sensing for Disaster Management




NASA ARSET Training: Using NASA Remote Sensing for Disaster Management

06/09/2016 to 06/30/2016
Times: 11:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m. and 6:00-7:00 p.m. EDT (UTC-4)

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.

Remote Sensing for Disaster Management

Course Format

  • 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.

Learning Objective

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.

Prerequisites

Intended Audience

National and international entities involved in disaster and water resources management, decision support activities, and relief and humanitarian activities.

Registration Information

This webinar is free, but you must register. Space is limited, and preference will be given to agencies listed above. Please only sign up for a single session – please check your local time to select your session preference.
