The ARSET Program offers satellite remote sensing training that builds the skills to integrate NASA Earth Science data into an agency’s decision-making activities. Trainings are offered in air quality, climate, disaster, health, land, water resources, and wildfire management. Through online and in person training, ARSET has reached over 32,000 participants from 170 countries and more than 7,500 organizations worldwide. 

Through ARSET trainings, you can learn how to: 

  • Use NASA data for environmental management
  • Search and access NASA resources relevant to your needs
  • Visualize, interpret, and apply remote sensing data and imagery

If you use the methods and data presented in ARSET trainings, please acknowledge the NASA Applied Remote Sensing Training (ARSET) Program.
