Remote Sensing of Drought

Description: 

Prolonged drought can result in economic, environmental, and health-related impacts. In this webinar, participants will learn how to monitor drought conditions and assess impacts on the ecosystem using precipitation, soil moisture, and vegetation data. The training will provide an overview of drought classification, as well as an introduction to web-based tools for drought monitoring and visualization. Lectures will be followed by hands-on demonstrations of data access and visualization.

Learning Objectives: 

By the end of the training, participants will be able to:

  • Understand how remote sensing can be used for drought monitoring
  • Acquire remotely-sensed imagery and products for drought
  • Analyze drought data and calculate anomalies within a geospatial software
Course Format: 
  • Two, 2 hour sessions
