3rd EO AFRICA R&D Facility Online Course: Water and Energy budgets from Space

Satellite Earth observation, hydro-meteorological modelling and data assimilation provide a powerful combination for quantifying hydroclimatic variables to effectively address water management issues The theory and techniques to observe the water & energy cycle variables form space will be addressed.

The focus will be on precipitation, evapotranspiration (ET) and storage changes. Monitoring of lakes and river levels, spatial dynamics of both precipitation and ET is covered.
