Workshop Applications – extended to June 16th!


“Unlocking the Global Benefits of Water Quality Monitoring through Earth Observation”

The University of Stirling’s Earth and Planetary Observation Research Group invite you to attend a workshop to address one of the most important questions within aquatic remote sensing, how can more people and more countries benefit from satellite-based Earth observation of water? Available satellite data and products for monitoring water quantity and water quality have advanced in the last decade, and individual countries need to grow capacity to ensure their own autonomy in benefiting from Earth observation to meet their own specific needs and agendas, whilst also supporting global initiatives, including Sustainable Development Goals. This workshop will address this critical issue by collectively exploring the challenges and opportunities to deliver a series of strategies that are specific to different global economic groups (low, lower-middle, upper-middle and high income countries) and the unique context of each group. Join us to shape a future in which all can benefit from Earth observation of water.
