Monitoring Tropical Storms for Emergency Preparedness

Description: 

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.

Learning Objectives: 

By the end of the training, attendees will be able 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
Course Format: 
  • Two, 2 hour sessions
Prerequisites: 

Complete Sessions 1 and 2B of Fundamentals of Remote Sensing and NASA Remote Sensing Observations for Flood Management, or have equivalent experience. Attendees that do not complete prerequisites may not be properly prepared for the pace during the training.

 

Target Audience: 

Individuals and organizations engaged in emergency management, such as relief organizations, transportation and utility providers, public health professionals, insurance providers.
