In this introductory webinar, participants will be provided with an overview of remote sensing for coastal and ocean applications. This will include a background in aquatic remote sensing, data access and tools for processing and analyzing imagery, and examples and live demonstrations of applied science tools that have been developed for NASA and partner organizations. This course will review data products from MODIS, VIIRS, HICO, and other sensors commonly used for ocean applications.

Participants will learn about NASA Earth observation resources (data and tools) available for coastal and ocean applications, including:
Local, regional, state, federal, and international organizations interested in using satellite imagery for coastal and ocean applications. Governmental and non-governmental organizations in the public and private sector engaged in environmental management and monitoring.
This webinar series is free, but you must register before viewing recordings.
