These webinars are available for viewing at any time. They provide basic information about the fundamentals of remote sensing, and are often a prerequisite for other ARSET trainings.
Participants will become familiar with satellite orbits, types, resolutions, sensors and processing levels. In addition to a conceptual understanding of remote sensing, attendees will also be able to articulate its advantages and disadvantages. Participants will also have a basic understanding of NASA satellites, sensors, data, tools, portals and applications to environmental monitoring and management.
These trainings are appropriate for professionals with no previous experience in remote sensing.
A general overview to remote sensing and its application to disasters, health & air quality, land, water resource and wildfire management.
Get familiar with Earth observing satellites in NASA's fleet, sensors that collect data you can use in ARSET trainings, and potential applications.
