ARSET - Disaster Assessment Using Synthetic Aperture Radar

Start Date:
Oct. 19, 2022
End Date:
Oct. 27, 2022
This intermediate, three-part webinar series will focus on the use of SAR to 1) assess areas at risk from disasters due to landslides through the use of interferometric SAR (INSAR). This is accomplished by measuring small movements of the land surface that are caused by gradual landslide motion, 2) characterise the extent of oil spills and their impacts. SAR data is sensitive to surface roughness, allowing for identifying areas where there are oil spills; 3) & characterizing inundation extent.
Targeted Audience:
Disaster management agencies, including domestic and international government agencies (e.g., FEMA and equivalent government organisations outside the U.S.) as well as aid organisations (e.g. Red Cross, UN).
Expected Outcomes:
By the end of this training attendees will be able to understand why SAR data is sensitive to inundation, oil spills, and landslides. They will also be able to use SAR data to monitor oil spills and floods as well as to identify areas at risk to landslides.
