This webinar focuses on introducing a number of publicly available, near global, web-based flooding tools that use NASA remote sensing data. It first introduces the fundamentals of remote sensing and NASA Earth science modeling data. Included case studies:
Attendees will be able to access and analyze data from rainfall-based tools, while taking into account terrain, river basins, landmarks, and socioeconomic data.
No previous remote sensing is required.
This course is intended for individuals at the local, state and federal level, NGOs, international management agencies and private sector organizations interested in inundation and flood management.
This webinar is free, but you must register for each session before viewing the recording.
Demonstrating flooding cases with TRMM Extreme Rainfall, the Global Flood Monitoring System, and the MODIS Inundation Tool, and an overview and demonstration of the Global Flood Detection System (GDACS) and the Global Flood Detection System (GFDS). View the recording »
