Detecting Drought and Vegetation Health with Remote Sensing

Description & Learning objectives

Remote sensing is the acquisition of information about the Earth’s surface without being in physical contact with it. Satellites cover large areas on the ground with relatively high detail, providing information about vegetation and water content. As a result, remote sensing is a valuable tool for large-scale studies of vegetation health and drought.

This webinar and online lecture will provide an overview of remote sensing based indices and derived metrics that can be used for characterizing, assessing and monitoring vegetation conditions and drought (impacts) at both regional and global scales.


Date: ??/01/2020
Time: 14:00 to 15:00 (CEST)

The webinar will last around one hour. 30 minutes presentation, 30 minutes Q&A.
