Wednesday, October 7, 2020. 3:00 PM Eastern. Webinar: Automating the Detection of Disturbances to Aquatic Resources. Melanie Vanderhoof, Geoscience and Environmental Change Science Center. Sponsored by ASWM. More information here.

We will present an unsupervised automated approach to map disturbance and surface inundation extent across the Mid-Atlantic Region using the Landsat archive in Google Earth Engine. This approach can be used to identify aquatic resources potentially impacted by changes in land use. The presentation will build upon the preliminary results presented in the August 2019 Wetland Mapping Consortium webinar. The focus of this presentation, instead, however, will be on our published products and code. The code will enable users to test out the algorithms in the area of their choice, without needing to generate independent training data.
