Satellite Remote Sensing of Flood Monitoring and Management

IIRS, Dehradun, India
Date Range: 
Sunday, November 18, 2018 to Monday, November 19, 2018
09:00 - 18:00 IST (UTC+5:30)

Monsoon rains can have an enormous impact in southern Asia. While the rains can help agriculture, it can also cause extreme flooding. Satellite data can augment decision-support for flood warnings, responses, relief, and mitigation activities. This two-day training will cover access and use of satellite imagery and data to inform flood-related decisions. Attendees will learn to access and analyze data. This will allow attendees to track and map flooding, assess affected areas, and learn how they can integrate satellite data into their own decision-making processes.
