Join us to explore how multi-mission satellite remote sensing observes Earth from different perspectives. Remote sensing datasets have a wide range of applications from simple observation of earth surface changes to the complex model building of different interconnected processes and events. The talk will demonstrate the multi-disciplinarity of remote sensing technology like forestry, agriculture, geohazards, urban area, biodiversity, etc. Other than the different potentials of satellite remote sensing, the webinar will expose you to how to download underlying data via different search tools. A demo will be given on how and where to download different datasets and read them in ArcGIS / ENVI
