Remote Sensing for Conservation & Biodiversity

Suchith Anand


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.


NASA’s Applied Remote Sensing Training Program (ARSET) will be providing a webinar series in January 2019 on how to use satellite imagery for Conservation & Biodiversity applications. 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
  • biodiversity observation networks



Session One: Remote Sensing for Conservation

January 22, 2019


This session will focus on remote sensing for habitat suitability, species population dynamics, and monitoring wildfires.


Session Two: Remote Sensing for Biodiversity

January 24, 2019


This session will focus on the Group on Earth Observations Biodiversity Observation Network (GEOBON), Marine Biodiversity Observation Network (MBON), and essential biodiversity variables.


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 (MBON), and essential biodiversity variables.


This webinar is open and you can register at https://arset.gsfc.nasa.gov/land/webinars/conservation-biodiversity-2018


Best wishes,


Suchith
