Itaipu Technological Park (PTI)
Foz do Iguaçu
Wednesday, November 29, 2017 to Wednesday, December 6, 2017

Prediction and monitoring of water and extreme weather are a vital part of managing an area's natural resources. In partnership with UNESCO, ARSET is hosting a six day training on satellite remote sensing applications for watershed management. The training will take place in Foz do Iguaçu at the Itaipu Technological Park. Attendees will learn about remote sensing techniques applicable to water resource management through case studies and exercises. Registration is now closed, but more information is available on the course website.

Topics will include:

  • monitoring and predicting water-related disasters
  • precipitation estimates
  • soil moisture evapotranspiration
  • synthetic aperture radar (data access and processing)
  • land classifications
Course Format: 
  • Six days of intensive, in-person training
    • 8:30 a.m. - 5:30 p.m.
  • Day 5 will include a technical visit to the São Francisco Verdadeiro Watershed
