Introductory Webinar: Earth Observations for Disaster Risk Assessment & Resilience

The ARSET is offering webinar series will focus on remote sensing for disaster risk assessment. The series will cover natural disasters including tropical cyclones, flooding, wildfires, and heat stress. The training will also include access of socioeconomic and disaster damage data. Sessions 3 & 4 will cover case studies and operational applications of EO for disaster risk assessment.

Remote Sensing Webinar

Date Range: August 6, 2019. August 8, 2019. August 13, 2019. August 15, 2019.

Times: 10:00-12:00 EDT (UTC-4) and 15:00-17:00 EDT (UTC-4)

Registration Closes: Tuesday, August 6, 2019

Learning Objectives: 

By the end of this training, attendees will: 

  • learn about available NASA remote sensing and socioeconomic data and how to combine them for assessing risk
  • understand how to apply these data for assessing risk from floods and tropical cyclones in specific regions
  • learn how operational agencies are using NASA data for risk management
