The Big Picture with Dr. Emily Fairfax
Satellites beam down enormous volumes of geospatial environmental data every single day, and they've been doing it for decades. These data are an incredible resource, but it can be challenging to figure out how to get started using it. This workshop will guide participants through the process of finding and analyzing several types of publicly available remote sensing data, and then explore how that data can be used to monitor ecohydrologic changes in riparian corridors over space and time. After learning the basics of riparian remote sensing, we will practice using publicly available remote sensing tools in a case study of how beaver activity affected the climate resilience of riparian zones in several western US locations. At the end of the workshop, participants will have a foundation of knowledge and skills that support using remote sensing in their own projects and analyses.

||HI- Had a question about content of this short course- Are there any software requirements to participate (ESRI, ect)? Also what specific types of remote sensing data will be focused on?
||We will be using Google Earth Pro. It can be downloaded here https://www.google.com/earth/versions/#download-pro|
