Satellite data for water management and climate (live session with VanderSat)

About this event

Are you working in water management or climate adaptation and do you want to learn more on how satellite data can be used to improve your daily practice? This webinar is for you. During a live session our water and climate experts will provide you with some useful insights and practical knowledge about VanderSats unique satellite data. We will also provide you three interesting use cases: (geo)hydrological modelling, drought monitoring and climate accounting. Of course we will also give you a live demonstration of our products and viewer and there will be plenty of room for questions.

The session will take 45 minutes and will be led by our water and climate experts dr. Jaap Schellekens, Msc Simone van Schijndel and MSc Mendy van der Vliet. The following topics will be covered:

  • Satellite data versus in situ measurements: what is ground truth?
  • Demonstration of our two core products: cloud free 100 x 100 m soil moisture and 10 x 10 m biomass proxy
  • Use case 1: How can satellite data improve my hydraulic and (geo)hydrological models?
  • Use case 2: Monitoring drought that matters: agricultural drought
  • Use case 3: Climate accounting: integrating satellite-based information in your daily decisions
