NASA Student Internship: Water Quality Data Synthesis!

Apply here: https://nasacentral.force.com/s/course-offering/a0Bt000000A3iJl/water-quality-data-synthesis

NASA currently operates a fleet of over 20 earth-observing satellites, and a few of these satellites are capable of monitoring water quality for inland and coastal waters. These areas are important for human life and livelihood, providing water for drinking and irrigation, habitats for fish and wildlife, avenues for transportation and shipping, and multiple forms of recreation for nearby communities. Satellites measure the color and intensity of reflected sunlight which can be related the presence of algae, toxins, and other indicators of water quality. However, satellite observations must be compared to field and in-water measurements to evaluate their performance and utility for monitoring water quality remotely from space, and several databases containing this data exist both within the US and across the world. We seek an intern to help inventory these multiple databases, collecting information about each for a centralized listing to make satellite water quality monitoring more efficient and accessible to multiple communities of satellite operators, resource managers, and researchers. An important part of these efforts will be to work with the international Group on Earth Observations (GEO) AquaWatch (https://www.geoaquawatch.org/) team to build and curate a web site to index these databases and serve as a single point to discover water quality databases for the US and international communities. The intern will also help prepare databases and establish guidelines for new data contributions to support hyperspectral and high frequency data sets, in collaboration with NASA scientists, as well as the agency’s federal and academic partners. An ideal candidate would have an ocean science or resource management background and possess strong organizational, information gathering, and computer skills, alongside the ability and motivation to learn new topics and skills.

Exceptional undergraduate seniors or graduate students are encouraged to apply!

GEO GEE Talks – featuring University of Pelotas (Brazil) Felipe Lobo and Algae MAp!

LIGHTNING TALKS!
Geo for Good Lighting Talk Series #10: GEO-GEE Programme –¬† Climate Action & Science

REGISTER and Find Out More Here! 

The Google Earth Outreach team hosts a series of monthly lightning talks by and for nonprofits, scientists and other change-makers who want to leverage mapping tools and technology for positive impact in the world. We hope those talks will inspire you to think of new ways you can have an impact with Google’s tools or provide operational or practical hints to improve and optimize your workflows.
Two years ago, the Group on Earth Observations (GEO) and Google Earth Engine (GEE) announced that 32 projects from 22 countries were awarded production licenses and technical support to tackle some of the world’s greatest challenges using open geospatial data. As the GEO-GEE Programme draws to a close, we’re excited for the project teams to share their results and outcomes over the next few Lightning Talk episodes. In June, we’ll hear from project teams on how they used Google Earth Engine to support climate action & science.

Registration open! 2022 NASA PACE Applications Workshop РSeptember 14th & 15th, 2022

Registration is now open for the 2022 NASA PACE Applications Workshop РSeptember 14th & 15th, 2022.

On behalf of NASA Plankton, Aerosol, Cloud, ocean Ecosystem (PACE) Mission, we are excited to invite you to join us for our 3rd annual PACE Applications Workshop!

This event will focus on advancing the application readiness and societal value of future PACE satellite data, research, and applications. We will collectively identify next steps to address barriers and gaps to ensure PACE data accessibility, usability, and actionability.

Event Highlights:

  • Keynote presentations¬†on co-production, data discovery, and multi-mission synergies.
  • Live panel sessions¬†and informal Q&As with industry professionals across social sciences, Earth observation data management, and applied research and operations.
  • Poster sessions¬†highlighting work by members of the PACE community including¬†PACE Early Adopters¬†and¬†PACE Science & Application Teams.
  • PACE resource library¬†and pre-recorded presentations from the members of¬†PACE Project Science.
  • Networking opportunities¬†via 1:1 or group meeting spaces and virtual lounges.

Register for the 2022 PACE Applications Workshop

 Additional details will be made available on the event website as they become available. Please feel free to contact the PACE Applications team (pace-applications@oceancolor.gsfc.nasa.gov) with any questions.

We look forward to seeing you in September!
