Satellite observations support wetlands management

The European Space Agency’s (ESA) GlobWetland Africa project has produced maps that demonstrate how satellite observations can be used for the effective use and management of wetlands in Africa. The project, created in collaboration with the African Team of the Ramsar Convention on Wetlands, provides national and international stakeholders with the necessary satellite-based methods and tools useful for the conservation and effective management of wetlands.

Satellite data powers flood early warning system

Landsat 8 captured the Lower Sesan II Dam and its adjacent rivers on 1 February 2018. While in 2010, 3 percent of Cambodia’s domestically generated electricity came from hydropower, by 2016, hydropower supplied 60 percent. Image: NASA.

Vietnamese and American researchers joined efforts to develop a satellite-based system approach to monitor and manage transboundary flooding.

NASA: Advanced Webinar: Techniques for Wildfire Detection and Monitoring

This is event is available for participation on an ongoing basis
Undefined

NASA's Applied Remote Sensing Training Department is offering a new webinar on wildfire detection on July 19th, 2018 from 18:00-20:00 EDT (UTC-4). Following the event the webinar will be available as a recording. 

In light of increasing drought and wild fire frequencies, the first session describes key aspects of satellite based wildfire monitoring and introduces a new QGIS plugin: "QGIS Fire Mapping Tool (FMT)". The second session gives an overview of the Global Wildfire Information System (GWIS) and demonstrates how to use the GWIS viewer.

Researchers test new model for predicting disease outbreak based on space data

In May 2017, a team of scientists from West Virginia University used satellites to monitor temperatures, water storage, precipitation and land in order to predict a cholera outbreak in Yemen. After processing the satellite data in algorithms, the team was able to come up with a prediction model and ultimately to identify the particular areas that were most at risk for an outbreak several weeks before the event took place.

New online remote sensing application for land cover classification and monitoring with Landsat data

REMAP app is an open-access online application for land cover classification and monitoring. The application is aiming to extend the ability of volunteers, managers, and scientists to assess the extent of land cover changes and implement actions to help the conservation of natural environments around the world under the IUCN Red list of ecosystems.

Easier access to Landsat data improves remote sensing research

The technological improvements of the past decade have brought into scene a faster and more efficient way of working with Landsat satellite data.

Scientists and students can now spend more time analysing and evaluating instead of compiling and sorting data from satellites. The modernization of the remote sensing research process has occurred thanks to two main factors: the growth of computing power and the public and free availability of Landsat archives from 2009.
