Mapping and Monitoring Lakes and Reservoirs with Satellite Observations – NASA ARSET

A NASA ARSET vai iniciar uma nova formação no próximo dia 9 de fevereiro com o tema Mapping and Monitoring Lakes and Reservoirs with Satellite Observations.

A formação Mapping and Monitoring Lakes and Reservoirs with Satellite Observationsdesenvolve-se em três sessões diárias de uma hora e meia cada. Os participantes podem escolher dois blocos de sessões com horários diferentes.

Bloco A –  10:00-11:30 AM EST (UTC-5)

Bloco B – 16:00-17:30 PM EST (UTC-5)

O curso desenvolve-se em inglês com o seguinte programa:

Sessão 1:
Overview of Remote Sensing Observations for Monitoring Water Extent, Water Level Height, and Bathymetry in Lakes and Reservoirs
  • Introduction to relevant satellites and sensors for monitoring lakes and reservoirs
  • Overview and applications of remote sensing-based data sets to facilitate lake and reservoir management
  • Data acquisition for global surface water derived from optical data in Google Earth Engine
