Online Certificate Course on “Remote Sensing Applications in Agricultural Water Management”
IIRS Outreach Programme
EVENT DESCRIPTION

Shah and Anchor Kutchhi Engineering College announces another online course as a Remote Centre of Indian Institute of Remote Sensing (IIRS), Indian Space Research Organisation, Department of Space, Government of India🚀🚀.
To utilize the lockdown period effectively, The Department of Electronics and Telecommunication Engineering, SAKEC in association with IETE-SAKEC Student Chapter is organizing a Online Certificate Course on “Remote Sensing Applications in Agricultural Water Management” from Monday, 03rd August 2020 to 07th August 2020 at  Remote Center: Shah and Anchor Kutchhi Engineering College (SAKEC), Chembur, Mumbai.

ABOUT THE COURSE

Agriculture has been a vital sector and back bone of Indian rural economy. In agriculture, water is a scarce and indispensable resource for the achieving food security, sustainable ecosystems as well as maintained hydrological cycle. The changes in land use have accelerated in recent years. The estimation of water for agricultural use needs to be updated frequently, which is time-consuming and cost ineffective with traditional field based techniques.

In present context, Earth Observation (EO) satellites operated in optical/thermal and microwave domains with frequent revisit and improved spatial resolution providing periodic monitoring of crop information such as irrigated crop area, crop condition, phenology, evapotranspiration, water stress and soil moisture for informed decision making on water management.

Furthermore, availability of new airborne sensors and unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) supported earth observation and their combination with process based models/ground based instrumentation i.e. eddy flux tower, large aperture scintillometer, lysimeter, Bowen ratio energy balance etc. are facilitating the development of new data processing techniques as well as their integration to develop precision irrigation systems and geospatial crop water accounting.
