DA-02 - Applications and settings

Learning Objectives: 
  • Describe how sea surface temperatures are mapped
  • Explain how sea surface temperature maps are used to predict El Niño events
  • Outline a plausible workflow used by MDA Federal (formerly EarthSat) to create the high-resolution GEOCOVER global imagery and GEOCOVER-LC global land cover datasets.
  • Outline a plausible workflow for habitat mapping, such as the benthic habitat mapping in the main Hawaiian Islands as part of the NOAA Biogeography program
