Introductory Webinar: Using Earth Observations to Monitor Water Budgets for River Basin Management

NASA Applied Remote Sensing Training Program (ARSET)

Course Overview: Rivers are a major source of freshwater. They support aquatic and terrestrial ecosystems, provide transportation, and generate hydropower. Managing river basin watersheds is critical for developing policies for sustainable water allocation and development. Over the course of four sessions, this introductory webinar series will address using satellite data and Earth system modeling data sources to estimate surface water budgets.

Learning Objectives: By the end of this training, attendees will become familiar with:

  • remote sensing and Earth system modeling data sources relevant for river basin watershed management

  • estimating surface water budgets and their temporal variability in sub-watersheds within river basins

Course Dates: Wednesdays, March 13 through April 3, 2019

Times: 09:00-10:30 and 16:00-17:30 EDT (UTC-4)
