Fundamentals of Remote Sensing

These webinars are available for viewing at any time. They provide basic information about the fundamentals of remote sensing, and are often a prerequisite for other ARSET trainings.

Learning Objectives: 

Participants will become familiar with satellite orbits, types, resolutions, sensors and processing levels. In addition to a conceptual understanding of remote sensing, attendees will also be able to articulate its advantages and disadvantages. Participants will also have a basic understanding of NASA satellites, sensors, data, tools, portals and applications to environmental monitoring and management.

Course Format: 
  • One-hour sessions
  • Currently two available sessions
  • No certificates are available for this training
Prerequisites: 

No previous remote sensing experience is required for this training. 

Audience: 

These webinars are appropriate for professionals with no previous experience in remote sensing.
