Biodiversity Applications for Airborne Imaging Systems: NASA ARSET
March 27, 2023
April 5, 2023
Highlight the use of hyperspectral Visible to Shortwave Infrared (VSWIR) imaging spectroscopy data, for example from AVIRIS-NG and PRISM instruments, for measuring and monitoring terrestrial and aquatic biodiversity. Next, the series will focus on using thermal and LiDAR data for characterizing the structure and function of ecosystems using airborne campaigns including the Hyperspectral Thermal Emission Spectrometer (HyTES) and NASA's Land, Vegetation, and Ice Sensor (LVIS).
Domestic and international governmental and non-governmental organizations who would like to use available and anticipated NASA data to help inform biodiversity-related decisions in the terrestrial and aquatic realms.
By the end of this training, attendees will be able to:
Understand the applications of hyperspectral data, multispectral data, and LiDAR data for biodiversity monitoring and analysis
Utilize existing datasets in preparation for upcoming NASA satellite missions and airborne campaigns
