Monitoring Tropical Storms for Emergency Preparedness

Description: 

Free webinar from the Applied Remote Sensing Training (ARSET) programme at NASA to identify remote sensing data and tools relevant to tropical storms, monitor conditions before, during, and after a storm using remote sensing data, understand how remote sensing data can be used in decision-making activities.

Tropical storms have major impacts, including loss of life and destruction of property. In 2017 alone, the United States experienced three tropical storms with more than $1 billion in losses. Open source satellite data can be used before, during, and after a storm for monitoring and response. A storm’s intensity, path, wind, precipitation, storm surge, and flooding can be derived from historical and near real-time satellite observations. In this introductory webinar, participants will learn about the NASA data and tools they can use to monitor tropical storms.
