This webinar series introduces NASA remote sensing data, tools, and products for application in water quality monitoring. It focuses on data access of MODIS-based water quality paramters including chlorophyll-a concentration, temperature, color dissolved organic matter (CDOM), turbidity, and euphotic depth. It also looks at Landsat data for qualitative monitoring of water quality parameters, and covers the NASA missions GEOCAPE and PACE.
Attendees will learn to access, analyze, and apply NASA remote sensing data for water quality monitoring in coastal oceans, estuaries, and inland lakes.
No previous remote sensing experience 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 water quality management.
This webinar is free, but you must register for each session before viewing the recording.
An overview of satellite and sensors for water quality remote sensing, water quality data and tools, future satellite missions, and an introduction to the NASA Ocean Biogeochemical Model.
