Part 3 - NASA Advanced Learning: Mangrove Mapping

"An introduction to the analysis and interpretation of Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) data for mangrove mapping."

An introduction to the analysis and interpretation of Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) data for mangrove mapping. In this session, you will also complete an Exercise in Mapping Mangroves with the Sentinel Toolbox.

Each training will include a theoretical portion describing the use of SAR for landcover mapping followed by a demonstration to access, download, and analyze SAR data for forest mapping and monitoring. These demonstrations will use freely available, open-source data and software.

By the end of this presentation, you will be able to:

  • Identify the radar signal interaction with mangrove ecosystems
  • Recognize the challenges in using SAR for mapping mangroves

Attendees who have not completed the Fundamentals of Remote Sensing may not be prepared for the pace of the training.

This training was created by NASA's Applied Remote Sensing Training Program (ARSET). ARSET is a part of NASA's Applied Science's Capacity Building Program. Learn more about ARSET HERE. In case of any questions regarding the session, please feel free to reach out to Ana I. Prados, Ph.D., Research Associate Professor, Joint Center for Earth Systems Technology (JCET), University of Maryland Baltimore County at aprados@umbc.edu.
