    Land in Focus – Wet Ecosystems

    MOOC (Online) by European Space Agency (ESA) and EO College · Free · Current

    Our planet is diverse and many of our landscapes are heavily impacted by standing or flowing water. Wet ecosystems are considered to be amongst the most productive ones known to mankind. They provide habitat for a rich variety of plants and animals, while additionally playing major roles in global cycles of water, carbon dioxide and other substances that are essential for life, as we know it. Human-induced changes such as drying out wetlands or the impact of anthropogenic climate change are threatening wet ecosystems and require even more attention in the observation of soil moisture as well as global water levels.

    Winter-Water-Warming: Canadian SAR Applications

    MOOC (Online) by European Space Agency (ESA) and EO College · Free · Current

    In this course, we will introduce you to how Canadians research, develop and utilize radar remote sensing technology for mapping and environmental monitoring. In five brief lessons, you will learn about early developments of radar leading to the Canadian RADARSAT program and how Canadian government researchers and managers are currently using satellite radar data in their day-to-day work. After completing this course you will have a better understanding of Canada’s practical needs for and know-how of satellite radar when it comes to meeting the challenges of winter, water, and warming in a very large country.

    Land in Focus – Agriculture & Food

    MOOC (Online) by European Space Agency (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.

    Land in Focus – People, Land, Sustainability

    MOOC (Online) by European Space Agency (ESA) and EO College · Free · Current

    What is the global stock take and how can we measure carbon emissions from space, what should you look for when selecting a land cover dataset, and how does land use policy impact our land and can these changes be seen and quantified using remote sensing methods? These and more questions will be answered in the sequence of lessons which are part the ‘People, Land, & Sustainability’ MOOC. This course deals with the transformation caused by humans across the globe and how we quantify these change with the means of earth observation.

    Land in Focus – Forest Ecosystems

    MOOC (Online) by European Space Agency (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 (Online) by European Space Agency (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.
