Rivers are a major source of freshwater. They support aquatic and terrestrial ecosystems, provide transportation, and generate hydropower. Managing river basin watersheds is critical for developing policies for sustainable water allocation and development. These training webinars will address the use of satellite data and Earth system modelling data sources to estimate surface water budgets. 


By the end of this training, attendees will become familiar with: 

  • Remote sensing and Earth system modelling data sources relevant for river basin watershed management
  • Estimating surface water budgets and their temporal variability in sub-watersheds within river basins

Level and Format:

  • Introductory
  • Four, one-hour webinars


The content of this training was developed for local, regional, state, federal, and international organisations engaged in the management of water resources, river basins, floods, droughts, land development, river transportation, hydroelectric power, and reservoirs.
