Early Warning Systems

Advanced Webinar on Using NASA Remote Sensing for Flood Monitoring and Management

This NASA-ARSET webinar will provide demonstrations and hands-on experience in using NASA remote sensing observations and flood mapping tools useful for flood management. Participants will learn to access rainfall and the potentially surface inundation extent data for regional flood cases. In addition, participants will learn to access digital elevation and terrain data, as well as socioeconomic data, to facilitate flood risk assessment and post-flood relief planning using a GIS framework.

ITHACA Extreme Rainfall Detection System (ERDS) will be presented in collaboration with TRIM (Translate Into Meaning) in Session 1 (March 16, 2016): Demonstrations of Flood Mapping Web Tools based on NASA Remote Sensing Observations of Rainfall. Case studies include Texas Flood (May 2015) and Malawi Flood (January 2015).
