ARSET - Assessing the Impacts of Fires on Watershed Health

Start Date:
July 6, 2023
End Date:
July 13, 2023
This advanced-level training will focus on using remote sensing observations for monitoring post-fire impacts on watershed health, building off the ARSET training offered in 2021: Satellite Observations and Tools for Fire Risk, Detection, and Analysis. Specifically, this training will highlight uses of NASA Earth observations (EO) for pre-fire land cover mapping, watershed delineation and stream mapping, post-fire burn severity mapping, and pre- and post-fire riverine and freshwater water quality. This three-part training will highlight case studies that use remote sensing data for assessing the impacts of fires on watersheds. This training will also provide participants with hands-on exercises for using NASA EO for these assessments within the Soil Water Assessment Tool (SWAT) and Google Earth Engine. Agenda Registration Session A 11:00-12:30 EDT (UTC-4) or Registration Session B 15:00-16:30 EDT (UTC-4)
Targeted Audience:
The primary audience for this training consists of local, regional, state, federal, and international organizations involved in resource and ecosystem management and disaster response. The secondary audience for this training are those with an interest in applying remote sensing data toward fire science.
