Humanitarian Applications Using NASA Earth Observations (June 14-23)
This 4-part introductory training will focus on using NASA data products for monitoring human settlements and landscapes during armed conflict and forced displacement. This ARSET training is the first dedicated to humanitarian applications of NASA satellite imagery with topics including monitoring urban damage, mapping refugee settlement dynamics, and gauging climate hazards at refugee settlements. For each topic, the group will discuss relevant satellite sensors and methodologies, data access and analysis using Google Earth Engine, as well as assumptions, opportunities, and limitations of various remote sensing-based approaches in humanitarian applications.
OceanHackWeek 2022 (Due June 1)

Wildfire risk: First Street Foundation releases new modeling tool
First Street Foundation publicly launched the first climate-adjusted, property-specific wildfire risk tool for the US. Built with wildfire experts from the Pyregence Consortium, founded on US government open data and open science, the tools models the likelihood of wildfire reaching every property in the contiguous US for today and 30 years into the future. ESIP community member Ed Kearns helped craft the tool.
