Learning Objectives: By the end of the training, attendees will be able to: 

  • Understand how remote sensing can be used for drought monitoring
  • Acquire remotely-sensed imagery and products for drought
  • Analyze drought data and calculate anomalies within a geospatial software

Intended Audience: Regional, state, federal, and international organizations interested in using remote sensing to monitor drought. 

Registration: This webinar is free and open but you must register. Please only register for one of the daily sessions
