Leveraging Earth Observation (EO) Data and Cloud Computing for Disaster Risk Management

MOOC by AI.Geolabs · Free · Current

The UN report that extreme weather and climate events are projected to increase over decades. Scientists warn that the frequency of cyclones and heavy storms, on the one hand, and the intensity of droughts and wildfires, on the other hand, will likely increase globally. Furthermore, the power of weather- and climate-related disasters will also increase economic losses that affect the poor and marginalized communities. Therefore, there is a need to understand the spatial and inter-annual variability of natural disasters and the population’s exposure to disaster risk. For example, information on the spatial extent of an event and the degree of destruction is critical in supporting emergency response, recovery, rehabilitation, and reconstruction.

Python for Geographic Information System (GIS)

Workshop by NobleProg · £3900-5100 · Current

A geographic information system (GIS) is a system designed to capture, store, manipulate, analyze, manage, and present spatial or geographic data. The acronym GIS is sometimes used for geographic information science (GIScience) to refer to the academic discipline that studies geographic information systems and is a large domain within the broader academic discipline of geoinformatics. The use of Python with GIS has substantially increased over the last two decades, particularly with the introduction of Python 2.0 series in 2000, which included many new programming features that made the language much easier to deploy. Since that time, Python has not only been utilized within commercial GIS such as products by Esri but also open source platforms, including as part of QGIS and GRASS. In fact, Python today is by far the most widely used language by GIS users and programmers. This program covers the usage of Python and its advance libraries like geopandas, pysal, bokeh and osmnx to implement your own GIS features. The program also covers introductory modules around ArcGIS API, and QGIS toolboox.

QGIS for Geographic Information System

Workshop by NobleProg · £3900-5100 · Current

A geographic information system (GIS) is a system designed to capture, store, manipulate, analyze, manage, and present spatial or geographic data. The acronym GIS is sometimes used for geographic information science (GIScience) to refer to the academic discipline that studies geographic information systems and is a large domain within the broader academic discipline of geoinformatics. QGIS functions as geographic information system (GIS) software, allowing users to analyze and edit spatial information, in addition to composing and exporting graphical maps. QGIS supports both raster and vector layers; vector data is stored as either point, line, or polygon features. Multiple formats of raster images are supported, and the software can georeference images. To summarize it allows the users to Create, edit, visualise, analyse and publish geospatial information on Windows, Mac, Linux, BSD. This program, in its first phase, introduces the QGIS interface for general usage. In the second phase, we introduce PyQGIS - the python libraries of QGIS that allows the integration of GIS functionalities in your python code or your python application, so that you may even create your own Python Plugin around a particular GIS functionality

Aseptic Processing: Principles in Practice

Short course by Honeyman · £1560 · Current

It is well understood that sterility of an aseptic product cannot be determined by direct assessment of the finished product. Therefore, microbiological safety of the product can only be achieved by careful assessment of the hazards and control measures in place to provide the confidence that the items are safe for the patient and fit for use. Historically aseptic processes have relied heavily on monitoring of the environment, air, surfaces and personnel to verify the success of the process. However, modern aseptic processes require a more holistic assessment of all the protective measures in place within the process and the complex interaction between these control measures, this approach is fully covered within this course. We guarantee that on completion of this course, with the knowledge gained, you will look at aseptic processing from a new perspective.

Land in Focus – Agriculture & Food

MOOC by ESA and EO-College · Free · Current

Forests are responsible for supporting essential life processes, from purifying the air we breathe to maintaining healthy soils and clean water sources. Around the world, communities rely on the ecosystem services provided by forests to support their livelihoods. However, deforestation and forest degradation are threatening forest ecosystems worldwide, thus disturbing the climate change mitigation which forests provide, and which we desperately need. Using remote sensing satellites and techniques, we are able to map and monitor forests. This enables us to view changes in forest cover, alert authorities about deforestation events, and monitor the relationship between forests and greenhouse gasses (GHG’s). In this course, you will learn about the drivers of deforestation as well as how satellites and time series disturbance detection methods can identify deforestation events, even in areas masked by clouds. In the final lesson on Biomass Estimation, you will learn why tracking biomass is important, how it’s done, and how to overcome inaccuracies when estimating biomass.

UK SAR Workshop

Seminar by Space Hub Yorkshire · Free · Past

Space Hub Yorkshire presents the UK SAR Workshop. SAR – Synthetic Aperture Radar – is an active imaging process with applications to environment, civil and defence sectors. SAR sensors can be hosted on satellites, drones or in-situ and have the ability to ‘see through clouds’, meaning that SAR imagery of the Earth can be constructed when optical imagery cannot, for example when it’s cloudy or at night. With the new UK Space Strategy and Defence Space Strategy, there is a big need for the UK to develop its SAR capability as we seek to expand both our civil and defence use of Space data. The UK has world-renowned expertise in SAR, and this workshop is particularly timely because of the status of the UK involvement in Copernicus and the potential failure of ESA SAR satellite Sentinel-1b. Space Hub Yorkshire are hosting a one-day UK SAR Workshop on Monday 11th April, to stimulate discussions across the academic, commercial, civil and defence communities. We hope this will be a great opportunity to bring the whole UK community together. This will be held at Nexus, University of Leeds, with the option to join virtually.

MOOC by ESA and EO-College · Free · Current

Urbanization is changing our planet. About half of the world’s population already lives in cities. By 2050 that proportion is expected to rise to two-thirds. The loss of vegetation and the sprawl of impervious surfaces that are connected to this process are the cause of many problems societies have to face in the future. On the social level cities in the southern hemisphere are experiencing an uptick in unregulated settling resulting in the sprawl of slums, leaving large amounts of people in dire situations cut off from the most basic needs of daily life. Remote sensing can help to better understand those problems by capturing the changes in urban areas. Besides just visual observations, it also can provide quantification and more detailed information on the impacts of those changes, and thus provide decision-makers with valuable information.

Land in Focus – Hazards & Disasters

MOOC by ESA and EO-College · Free · Current

Welcome to the ‘Hazards and Disasters’ online courses. In the three MOOCs which are part of it, we will take a closer look at how remote sensing can answer essential questions related to the emergency response that is needed during hazardous events. Thus, disaster management heavily relies on remotely sensed data and their prompt processing in order to support decisions that can a) estimate the extent of a (natural) disaster and b) save lives by scientifically justifiable choices. In the three lessons of this course, we will present different applications of remotely sensed data for disaster monitoring to you. At first, we will take a look at droughts, then dive into mapping flood extents using an interactive cloud-based approach before ending our course with the monitoring of fire hazards.

Impact of COVID-19 measures on Atmospheric Composition

MOOC by ESA and EO-College · Free · Current

The global Coronavirus 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic saw many governments take unprecedented measures to limit the spread of the virus. These measures included a mixture of social distancing, a ban on large gatherings, the closing of schools, universities, restaurants and other non-essential stores, and a reduction in air travel, the closure of borders and other non-essential travel restrictions. Many of these measures have had a significant impact on the anthropogenic emissions in the atmosphere due to the drastic drop in road and air traffic and a strong reduction of industrial activities in non-essential sectors across the globe. To assess these impacts, ESA started the 'Impact study of COVID-19 lockdown measures on air quality and climate' (ICOVAC) project.

Sustainability in Space? Could Safety Cases Help

Seminar by SaRS · Free · Past

The growth of satellites in orbit has been matched by a growth in orbital debris. With the recent increase in mega constellations, the importance of taking a sustainable approach to space operations is increasingly a priority. Since the earliest days of space activity, international agreements such as the Outer Space Treaty, national laws and licensing, and of course standards and guidance have all played a part in ensuring that a balanced approach is taken to space operations. But what else can be learnt from other sectors ? This talk will explore what aspects of the ground based regulatory environment in the UK could be usefully applied to a hypothetical Safety Case in Space approach. Considering a generic low earth orbit mid-sized satellite, the pros and cons of a potential safety case informed approach will be explored for a full lifecycle in orbit operation, from deployment through to de-orbiting.
