Earth Observation 101 - Part 3: How is it being used?

Welcome to week 3 of our Earth Observation 101 Virtual Course! This week we explore how remote sensing data is used in both environmental and conservation case studies.

This four-part Earth Observation 101 lecture series from Dr Cristian Rossi will explore the technologies and the algorithms behind remote sensing and gives an overview of several applications using Remote Sensing data, including practicalities about data access and processing.

The third part of the lecture series covers two specific case studies: an environmental one, i.e. the search for lithium in Cornwall, and a conservation one, i.e. the monitoring of wildlife corridors. The case studies are covered in depth, with a description of the remote sensing process behind them.

Part 3 covers:

  • 3.1 Environmental remote sensing: the search for lithium in Cornwall (UK) 
  • 3.2 Conservation remote sensing: wildlife corridors

If you have questions or comments, drop them in our Part 3 discussion thread!


Part 3 full premiere:


Part 3 individual videos:


This lecture series is free and allows you to move at your own pace with videos available to all on the WILDLABS YouTube channel. Course content will also be posted in the Earth Observation 101 Community WILDLABS group, where you can navigate through all the content as it is posted, engage with other participants, and reach out to the course instructor directly.


Coming up in part 4

In Part 4 we will discover how to access earth observation data from both public and commercial providers; describe in detail the main public satellite missions; discover existing products generated with earth observation data and finally we will briefly describe available tools and platform for data processing.
