This webinar provides a broad overview of environmental parameters available from NASA Earth Science to facilitate environmental decision support by monitoring and mapping air quality, water resources, disasters and ecosystems. There are multiple sources and data archives for these data sets from different satellite missions, sensors, and earth system models - with varying features, strengths and limitations. Many web-based tools are available for easy access, analysis and visualization of NASA data. This course is designed to be a concise source of information about NASA data, locations, web tools and examples of data usage to facilitate end-users' data needs.
No previous remote sensing experience required
This course is intended for international development agencies, public and private sector organizations working in environmental management, applications and decision making.
