NASA's Applied Remote Sensing Training Program (ARSET) has opened a new open, online webinar series: Evaluating Ecosystem Services with Remote Sensing. This 3-part, introductory, webinar on August 23, 25, & 30, 2022 will be held 11:00-12:30 EDT (UTC-4) all three days.
This training will outline the basics of ecosystem services and natural capital accounting.

By the end of this training attendees will be able to:
- Summarize primary concepts of ecosystem services and natural capital accounting
- Recall global frameworks and initiatives for ecosystem assessments
- Outline the role of NASA Earth Observations (EO) in conducting ecosystem assessments
- Identify natural capital accounting models that incorporate EO
- Discover case study examples of the use of EO for ecosystem assessments
