Division Scientists Provide ARSET Training

The Applied Remote Sensing Training (ARSET) program completed its longest (six part) bilingual series, "Satellite Observations and Tools for Fire Risk, Detection, and Analysis." The training covered the use of Earth observations pre-fire (fire types, conditions, and fire danger), during-fire (thermal anomalies and smoke mapping), and post-fire (burned area, landscape changes, and regrowth), and the content spanned air quality, disasters, and land applications. The course instructors were Melanie Follette-Cook (614/MSU), Pawan Gupta, Amita Mehta (612/UMBC), Erika Podest, Sean McCartney (610/SSAI), Juan Torres-Pérez, Zach Bengtsson, Robert Field (611/CU), and Ana Prados (614/UMBC); and guest presenters Elijah Orland (617/USRA) and Blanca Rios. Brock Blevins (614/SSAI), Selwyn Hudson-Odoi (612/UMBC), David Barbato (614/UMBC) and Jonathan O’Brien (614/SSAI) supported the training. There were 2,544 attendees from 110 countries and 47 US states. Approximately 1,200 unique organizations were represented.
