The 10th Webinar on the EO AFRICA R&D Facility Webinar Series is now available in our YouTube channel:
Drought Monitoring case studies in Africa
The webinar describes ways to monitor drought events using microwave Earth Observation data. Existing methods for the calculation of climate normals, anomalies and drought indicators will be described and demonstrated over Africa. The strength and weaknesses of the indicators and an evaluation with common drought indicators such as Standardized Precipitation Index will be discussed. Furthermore, the use of soil moisture for early season yield prediction is discussed.
The webinar is executed under the framework of the EO AFRICA R&D Facility by TU Wien.
