Webinar – Detecting Drought and Vegetation Health with Remote Sensing
January 21 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
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.
