This first ARSET lightning style training is designed to support high demand and interest from the applications community in new NASA Earth observing technologies that can be used to support resources management. This webinar focuses on a NASA instrument that was launched and installed on the International Space Station in Summer 2018. Designed to study terrestrial ecosystems and plant water stress from the ISS, ECOSTRESS can also be used to better understand crop health, volcanoes, urban heat, wildland fires, coastal systems, and much more.
The primary science and applications mission of ECOSTRESS is to address three critical questions around vegetation health and agriculture:
By the end of this one-hour introduction, attendees will understand:
Attendees should be familiar with the fundamentals of remote sensing. Participants without that level of knowledge may not be adequately prepared for all the terms and concepts presented.
Local, regional, state, federal, and non-governmental organizations involved in land management, drought monitoring, and agricultural applications.
