Remote Sensing for Conservation & Biodiversity

MAIN ORGANIZER(S): National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA)

Type: Training Course Date: 22 - 24 Jan 2019 Location: Online event

The United Nations Millennium Ecosystem Assessment states: “ecosystems are critical to human well-being - to our health, our prosperity, our security, and to our social and cultural identity.” Conservation and biodiversity management play important roles in maintaining healthy ecosystems. Earth observations can help with these efforts. This online webinar series introduces participants to the use of satellite data for conservation and biodiversity applications. The series will highlight specific projects that have successfully used satellite data. Examples include monitoring chimpanzee habitat loss, decreasing whale mortality, detecting penguins, monitoring wildfires, and biodiversity observation networks.

Learning Objectives:  By the end of this training, attendees will: 

  • be able to outline uses of remote sensing for habitat suitability, species population dynamics, and monitoring wildfires
  • learn about the Group on Earth Observations Biodiversity Observation Network (GEOBON), Marine Biodiversity Observation Network (MBON), and essential biodiversity variables

Course Dates:  Tuesday, January 22, 2019 to Thursday, January 24, 2019

Registration Information: 

There is no cost for the webinar, but you must register to attend the sessions on the training webpage. Both sessions will be held in English.
