Face to Face course on Earth Observations for Water Resources Assessment and Monitoring
The second F2F course of the EO AFRICA R&D Facility will take place in Accra, Ghana, immediately after the United Nations/Ghana 5th International Conference on the Use of Space Technologies for Water Resources Management.
In this course, participants will get an introduction to cloud-based image analysis techniques for surface water resources assessment and monitoring with a focus on surface water bodies and wetland dynamics. The training includes face-to-face lecturing and sets of short videos combined with reading material to provide the theoretical background. Hands-on exercises will demonstrate the applications of the methods.
