Special Webinar: NASA Applied Remote Sensing Trainings on Water Quality Monitoring Using Remote Sensing Observations

Registration Closes: 
Friday, November 27, 2015

A one hour review of the Applied Remote Sensing Traiing program and training approaches relevant to water quality monitoring. ARSET trainings typically focus on decision support activities in a variety of thematic areas, and the program is in the process of developing training activities tailored to the drinking water and wastewater management communities. 

The webinar outlines web-based tools for data access, examples of water quality data usage, and water quality parameters available from NASA satellite observations, including: 

  • chlorophyll
  • harmful algal blooms
  • colored dissolved organic matter
  • euphotic depth
  • surface temperature
  • turbidity
  • sediments
  • suspended particles
Learning Objectives: 

Participants will learn about the strengths and limitations of remote sensing observations for water quality monitoring. 

Course Format: 

A single, one-hour webinar.

Prerequisites: 

No previous remote sensing required

Audience: 

Members of the drinking water and wastewater management communities interested in learning more about ARSET trainings and providing feedback on what kind of training would be best for their field. 

Registration Information:
