Using Google Earth Engine to Generate Monthly-to-Weekly Maps of Surface Water
Our topic will be "Using Google Earth Engine to Generate Monthly-to-Weekly Maps of Surface Water." The presenter will be Chris Soulard with the USGS Western Geographic Science Center.
Abstract: Satellite images allow scientists to study past land-use/land-cover (LULC) changes to better understand where and why changes have occurred across the landscape. The PLACE (Patterns in the Landscape – Analyses of Cause and Effect) project uses satellite imagery to investigate a wide range of LULC change processes, but the team’s primary focus over the past 4 years has been surface water monitoring using Google Earth Engine (GEE) cloud computing. This talk will describe the GEE-based Landsat and MODIS water mapping processes, and how map data are being applied to understand both short-term inundation events and long-term surface water trends.
