Introduction to Remote Sensing of Harmful Algal Blooms

05 - 26 September 2017

Organisation: National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA)

Location: Online seminar

Course Overview: Harmful algal blooms (HABs) can have a negative impact on the ecosystem and human health. Satellite remote sensing is able to collect data frequently and over a large area to identify impaired water quality from HABs. This data can inform decision-makers on where best to put their resources for taking water samples, determine what toxins are in the water, whether they need to change or move drinking water intakes, and whether a fishery needs to be closed. Remote sensing data enables individuals and organisations to have more flexible plans for water sampling. It also leads to a more efficient and appropriate allocation of resources for protecting human health.

By the end of the training, attendees will be able to identify NASA's Earth Science remote sensing data products for the identification and monitoring of HABs, describe how coupled remote sensing and modeling approaches are used in decision support tools, and use a selection of NASA Earth Science data tools to monitor HABs.

The course will consist of four, 1-hour sessions, every Tuesday in September (5, 12, 19, and 26) at either 11:00-12:00 or 21:00-22:00 EDT (UTC-4). The session is broadcast twice per day to allow for international participation.

Satellite SM & Application and CCI SM User Workshops

18 - 20 September 2017

Organisation: Department of Geodesy and Geoinformation

Location: Wien, Austria

Workshop Overviews:

The purpose of the Satellite Soil Moisture and Application Workshop, 19-20 September 2017, is to discuss and reconcile recent methodological advances in the development, validation and application of global satellite soil moisture data. The workshop series is unique by bringing together satellite soil moisture users and developers to focus on both the derivation and exploration of soil moisture data from passive or active microwave satellite missions (SMAP, SMOS, ASCAT, AMRS-2, Sentinel-1, and other legacy missions).

The CCI Soil Moisture User Workshop, on 18 September 2017, is similar in scope but particularly invites users of the CCI Soil Moisture products.Users from any relevant application area are invited to present their experiences with the data and provide ideas for future product improvements. The CCI Soil Moisture User Workshop is an event organized within the framework of ESA's Climate Change Initiative (CCI) Soil Moisture project.

River Basin Management 2017

19 - 21 July 2017

Organisation: Wessex Institute

Location: Prague, Czech Republic

Event Overview:

River Basin Management 2017 is the 9th Conference in the series which marks the growing international interest in the planning, design and management of river basin systems.

River Basin Management includes all aspects of Hydrology, Ecology, Environmental Management, Flood Plains and Wetlands. Riverine systems are coming under increasing pressure due to anthropological and natural causes. Prominent amongst the problems affecting them is water scarcity and quality, which requires the development of improved methods for better river management.

Changes in the landscape, use of the land and climate conditions lead to a continuous revaluation of river basin management objectives. This requires the development of better measuring tools as well as the use of increasingly accurate computer software.

The objective of this series of conferences is to bring together practitioners and researchers in academia and industry in the hope that their interaction will foster mutual understanding and lead to better solutions for river basins.
