NASA’s Applied Remote Sensing Training Program (ARSET) has opened a new open, online webinar series: SAR for Detecting and Monitoring Floods, Sea Ice, and Subsidence from Groundwater Extraction

Malin Johansson from CIRFA/UiT The Arctic University of Norway will be lecturing on the use of SAR to detect and monitor sea ice.

Course Dates: October 24, 31, & November 1, 2023

Time: 11:00 -13:00 EDT (UTC-4)

To Register

Learning Objectives: 

By the end of this training attendees will be able to:

  1. Generate subsidence maps due to groundwater extraction to inform risk and resource management
  2. Detect and monitor sea ice to identify potential risks to shipping and coastal erosion
  3. Detect and monitor floods in order to more closely monitor increase/recession of flood waters and better inform disaster response and management

Audience: This training is primarily intended for disaster management agencies, including domestic and international government agencies, aid organizations, indigenous communities, students, and academics.
