Introduction to Remote Sensing for Scenario-Based Ecoforecasting

As climates shift and change, ecosystems respond in a variety of ways. Assessing the ecological impacts of a changing climate is crucial for natural resource management decision-making. NASA Earth observations can be used to help make these decisions. This four-week webinar series, in collaboration with the USGS North Central Climate Center, will include an overview of the satellites, sensors, and tools relevant to ecological forecasting; available climate products and data for ecological modeling; scenario planning; and the application of modeling for species distribution and state-and-transition simulations.
Course Format:
Four, one-hour sessions
Sessions will be held on Thursdays in September, at 12:00-1:00 p.m. EDT (UTC-4)
