    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 – 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.

    Impact of COVID-19 measures on Atmospheric Composition

    MOOC (Online) by European Space Agency (ESA) and Imperative Space · 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. In this short course you will learn about what this project covered and its findings.
