MOOC Monitoring Climate from Space

Détails de la formation

Objectifs : Explore our planet from space and learn how Earth observation is used to monitor climate change, with this free online course.

The course consisted of five themed weeks:

Week 1 - Observing Climate Change from Space
What is Earth observation?
How we observe the Earth with satellites.
The role of Earth observation in climate policy and planning

Weeks 2 & 3 - Earth Observation Techniques and Technology
How different types of mission, instrumentation and data are used to study changes to our atmosphere, land, oceans and ice.

Week 4 - Earth Observation in Action
How Earth observation helps us to: set policy; plan for climate risk, resilience and adaptation; and manage resources and biodiversity.

Week 5 - Managing Earth Observation Data
How we make sense of the large amounts of data produced by Earth observation.
The role of crowdsourcing and citizen science in developing climate change models.
Future trends in Earth observation technology.

Public concerné : This course is designed for people who want to learn more about Earth observation, climate change and monitoring climate from space. The course can also help decision makers, policy makers, educators and communicators, to gain a better insight into how satellite data can help them assess the state of our climate and its changes, in order to support climate science, and adaptation and mitigation decisions.

Compétences acquises durant la formation : By the end of the course, you‘ll be able to...
Interpret and use satellite Earth observation data used in monitoring climatic and environmental change
Assess how Earth observation data can be used in climate policy and decision making
Describe how satellite data is used to observe and measure the Earth
Describe how satellite Earth observation data is used in climate models

Durée et modalités : 5 Semaines, 3 heures par semaine
