Terrascope webinar: Near-real time flood monitoring with Sentinel data

You are here



Organisation: Terrascope


Terrascope just presented a new series of webinars that will take place in early 2022. Experts in the field will present and demonstrate several different use cases, both research based and operational services, to show you how Earth observation data and services give us the possibility to achieve more.

Access massive amounts of data faster than ever before, combine data and use the latest technology, retrieve clear and objective information for critical decisions or new policies, … The cases are diverse: monitoring water quality, measuring nitrogen dioxide, combining satellite data and artificial intelligence to detect changes, mapping flooded areas, ...

Join them for one or more webinars and discover the great potential of Sentinel satellite data and how Terrascope can make your work easier. In each webinar, you will discuss one single use case, based on these three questions:

  • What was the question that needed an answer?
  • How did Sentinel satellite data help in formulating the answer?
  • What is the impact, now that the answer is provided?

The webinars are presented by the people directly involved in the use case. After the presentation you will be able to ask questions and chat with the experts.

This webinar

In this webinar by Lisa Landuyt (VITO Remote Sensing) you'll learn how Sentinel satellite data and other EO services, available in Terrascope, were combined to develop TerraFlood, a tool for near-real time flood monitoring. The methodology was developed in collaboration with the Flemish Environmental Agency (VMM) and was also used to map the devastating floods that hit Belgium in the summer of 2021. Register for this webinar to learn more about:

  • Sentinel-1 and its potential for water quality monitoring 
  • TerraFlood flood mapping algorithm
  • Flood maps and derived products available through Terrascope
