NASA remote sensing and modeling resources are useful for managing a variety of disasters - including earthquakes, tsunamis, volcanoes, floods, landslides, wildfires, and oil spills - particularly in regions with very little in situ data. This introductory webinar will provide an overview of NASA remote sensing data and applications for disaster management.
Participants will become aware of available NASA resources for disaster management, and will learn to access remote sensing observations using covered web tools for local disaster events.
National and international entities involved in disaster and water resources management, decision support activities, and relief and humanitarian activities.
An overview of remote sensing analysis and spectroscopy, why remote sensing is used for oil, and using optical imagery, thermal imagery, and SAR for oil spill detection and monitoring. Presenter: Ira Leifer.
