This training, designed specifically to build remote sensing skills for local, regional, state, federal, and international organizations interested in using synthetic aperture radar (SAR) for disaster or hydrological applications, builds on the skills taught from previous ARSET SAR trainings in terms of the use of Google Earth Engine for flood mapping of radar data.

This open, online 3-part webinar series was created in response to the end user community’s request become more familiar with the access and use of SAR data. In particular, how to create flood maps using Google Earth Engine, generate maps characterizing areas where landslides have occurred, and generate a digital elevation model (DEM) using SAR. To do so, each part will include a presentation on the theory of the topic followed by a demonstration and exercise for attendees.
