This is event is available for participation on an ongoing basis
English

Having reliable and timely population distribution data can make a life or death difference for individuals facing crises or living in conflict-ridden regions. These data are also essential for development decision-making and planning and for monitoring progress towards the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) established by the international community. We need to know where people are located, what conditions they are facing, what infrastructure is available, and what basic services they can access.

Use of Solar Induced Fluorescence and LIDAR to Assess Vegetation Change and Vulnerability

This is event is available for participation on an ongoing basis
English

This introductory webinar will cover the fundamentals of Solar Induced Fluorescence (SIF) and LIDAR, their applications, and an overview of different satellite data sources that are openly available. In addition, it will also include a step-by-step guide on how to access, open, and interpret SIF and LIDAR data.

SIF is a relatively new satellite retrieval, providing a direct measurement related to plant photosynthetic activity. It serves as a strong proxy to gross primary production (GPP), capturing dynamic responses of vegetation to stressors such as drought and temperature.

Mapping and Monitoring Lakes and Reservoirs with Satellite Observations

This is event is available for participation on an ongoing basis
English

Natural lakes and man-made reservoirs are a part of Earth’s surface water. Freshwater lakes and reservoirs are used for drinking water, fishing, and recreational activities. Aside from the aesthetic and scenic value added by their presence, lakes support surrounding plant and aquatic ecosystems and wildlife. A variety of factors affect lakes and reservoirs, including climate variability and change, land use, and other watershed activities influencing surface runoff and groundwater.

Hyperspectral Data for Land and Coastal Systems

This is event is available for participation on an ongoing basis
English

Hyperspectral data presents a unique opportunity to characterize specific vegetation types and biogeochemical processes across the land and oceans. Applications of hyperspectral data include plant species identification, invasive species management, assessment of phytoplankton functional types, mapping of wetlands and shallow benthic communities, and detection of harmful algal blooms (HABs).

GMES & Africa launches online learning platform

GMES and Africa logo.

The Global Monitoring for Environment and Security (GMES) and Africa programme, a joint initiative by the European Commission and the African Union Commission, has launched an online training platform to strengthen capacities in the use of Earth observation data and services for information decision-making. The new system follows the publication of the "GMES and Africa Training Strategy" in 2019.

Introduction to NASA’s "Black Marble" Night Lights Data

This is event is available for participation on an ongoing basis
English

At night, satellite images of Earth capture a uniquely human signal - artificial lighting. Remotely-sensed lights at night provide a new data source for improving our understanding of interactions between human systems and the environment. NASA has developed the Black Marble, a daily calibrated, corrected, and validated product suite, so night light data can be used effectively for scientific observations. Black Marble is playing a vital role in research on light pollution, illegal fishing, fires, disaster impacts and recovery, and human settlements and associated energy infrastructures.

Online course on community based disaster risk management

This is event is available for participation on an ongoing basis
Undefined

The theory and practice of disaster management today increasingly acknowledges the role of human factors in natural disasters. There is also a discernible shift in the nature of disaster preparedness and mitigation activities. While governments, supported by other actors-international agencies, academia, and non-governmental organisations play a key role in organizing and funding disaster management programs, the design and implementation of these initiatives include communities as prime actors. This approach has evolved in the last two decades.
