Silver Jackets Webinar: Partnering Opportunities with NASA

On June 13, the final in a Silver Jackets Partnering Opportunities webinar series was held. The title of the webinar was Sizing Up Floods from Space - National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA). Dr. David Green, Disasters Program Manager in NASA's Applied Sciences Program, was the presenter. The webinar described the NASA Disasters Program, highlighted case studies from recent events, and detailed how satellites and airborne assets are contributing toward stronger disaster management networks and tool sets for first responders and senior decision makers.

The NASA Earth Science Division provides access to data through reliable and repeatable processes for and about disaster issues, which are user-centric and can make substantive contributions toward risk-informed decisions and actions. NASA mobilizes global, regional and local efforts to get the right information at the right time and uses its science and technology capacity, application science and trusted partnerships to make data more discoverable and user-ready. The goal is to help guide planning through continuous monitoring and trend analysis before the next event occurs and make data, models, maps and other data-products accessible in a timely manner.

The recorded session (mp3, 29.9 MB), a copy of the speaker's bio slide (pdf, 159 KB) and the presentation (PDF, 8.16 MB | PPTX, 492 MB) are available.
