Remote Sensing Workshop

08/10/2018

Orbiting hundreds of kilometers above the Earth, satellites can provide a unique and comprehensive perspective on the state and changing conditions of our soils, crops, and land use. Today, scientists and policy makers who manage and report on agriculture rely on these space-based data to assess risks to productivity, to monitor how land use is adapting to a changing climate, and to determine crop productivity. The data generated by satellite monitoring is of significant interest to a large and diverse group of users, including scientists, policy analysts, governments, commodity bodies, futures markets and crop insurance companies.

This webinar will introduce the audience to remote sensing and demonstrate how satellites are being used to estimate water in the soil, map crop type and condition across large areas, and estimate biophysical metrics such as crop biomass. Examples will be drawn from the extensive research, operations and applications by Canada’s federal agriculture ministry, Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada. The webinar will provide an overview of available satellite technologies and how to access data. The webinar will also highlight opportunities for regional collaboration and coordination around research, training, and operational transition of satellite-based methods, through the GEO Global Agricultural Monitoring and AmeriGEOSS activities. An open discussion will follow to answer technical questions and queries concerning adaptation of these methods to address priority issues for the Americas.

General Objective: Learn about remote sensing and how satellites are being used to estimate water in the soil, map crop type and condition across large areas, and estimate biophysical metrics such as crop biomass.
