From Data to Decisions: Remote Sensing and Wetland Resilience

May 15, 2023 1:00 pm — 4:30 pm
Webinar Only

An ELI Public Workshop

From predicting sea-level rise to monitoring watershed-level changes, remote sensing techniques can help us better understand how wetlands react to changing environments. Yet, with more technologies and data available than ever before, it can be difficult for wetland programs to determine what data to use and how to use it in resilient management and decision-making.

To help wetland programs learn to interpret and utilize remote sensing data, the Environmental Law Institute presents From Data to Decisions: Remote Sensing & Wetland Resilience. This workshop will focus on how the strategic integration of remote sensing has the potential to support the resilience efforts of state, tribal, and local wetland programs. Speakers will cover practical topics such as:

  • Emerging technologies at the intersection of remote sensing, wetlands, and resilience
  • Benefits and challenges of using remote sensing to contribute to wetland programs’ resilience efforts, such as adaptive management practices and measurement of sea-level rise
  • Best practices for collecting, assembling, and incorporating remote sensing data into resilience programming


Materials will be posted as they are received.
The public will have subsequent access to a recording of this session (usually posted in 1-3 business days). If you are not an ELI member but would like to have access to other archived sessions, please see the many benefits of membership and how to join.
