"How NASA remote sensing data can be used to characterize and monitor disaster-related events and support relief efforts"
According to the WHO, every year disasters “kill around 90,000 people and affect close to 160 million people worldwide.” This training shows how NASA remote sensing data can be used to characterize and monitor disaster-related events and support relief efforts. Each session covers a different disaster and its supporting data. Disaster scenarios include tropical storms, flooding, earthquakes, and landslides. By the end of this training, attendees will be able to:
