Satellite-based radar remote sensing is a rapidly developing technology used for monitoring the Earth’s surface under all weather and illumination conditions. Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) sensors have the ability to consistently map the Earth environment, easily identify changes, and track deformations with high precision across large areas and over long time scales.

SAR-CBC is a capacity building center for the use of SAR in decision-making situations. It is intended to provide targeted educational material as well as webinars and on-site trainings that build capacity in the use of SAR-based Earth observation data in decisions-making situations, specifically, decision-making related to the four main AmeriGEOSS Social Benefit Areas Disaster Resilience, Agriculture Monitoring, Water Resource Management, and Ecosystem Sustainability.

Through the SAR-CBC portal you will have access to all educational material, will be able to complete online certificate programs, and will find all relevant information on upcoming webinars and on-site trainings.
