No Remote Sensing Experience? Introductory ARSET Webinars!
August 25, September 1, & September 8, 2020
11:00-12:00 EDT (UTC-4)
No remote sensing experience? This webinar is for you! NASA’s ARSET program Announces 3 upcoming sessions of an introductory webinar on Coastal Remote Sensing.
Remote sensing of coastal and marine ecosystems is particularly challenging. Up to 80% of the signal received by the sensors in orbit comes from the atmosphere. Additionally, the constituents of the water column (dissolved and suspended) attenuate most of the light either through absorption or scattering. When it comes to retrieving information from the ocean floor, even in the clearest waters, only less than 10% of the signal originates from it. Users, particularly those with little remote sensing experience, stand to benefit from this training covering some of the difficulties associated with remote sensing of coastal ecosystems, particularly beaches and benthic communities such as coral reefs and seagrass.
