This course aims to provide a better understanding of the theoretical concepts used to generate remote sensing based data on evapotranspiration and biomass production including their limitations. Specific attention will be given to the WaPOR database and how to do a systematic validation of the data. 

The course is organised into three modules:

  • Module 1: “Concepts of remote sensing ET (energy balance, FAO-56 PM)” 
  • Module 2: “WaPOR database: structure, input data, and methods” 
  • Module 3: “Validation of WaPOR database products”

A certificate of completion can be obtained after completing all assignments. 

Target Group: Early and mid-career water professionals with a technical background and a strong interest in new techniques for water use monitoring.

Pre-requisites: Preferably a relevant water and/or environmental science (agriculture, remote sensing, geoinformation, geography, or any other relevant) degree; basic working knowledge of spatial data and analysis techniques. Good command of the English language is required.

Recommendation to have completed module 1 of the OpenCourseWare on Water Productivity and Water Accounting using WaPOR before starting this course.

Course will be available from 15 June (registration is open)

Skill Level: Beginner
This course aims to teach end-users how to actively use the WaPOR portal for their own needs. The main focus of the course will be on how to search, download, and apply WaPOR data for water productivity and water accounting studies. The course is separated into 3 modules:
  • Module 1: Introduction and Usage (5 units)
  • Module 2: Water Productivity (3 units) 
  • Module 3: Water Accounting (5 units)

How to enrol: Log in with IHE OCW account then click on "Enrol me" under Self-enrolment option. If you don't have IHE OCW account yet, click on "Create new account". Complete the Sign-up form then log in with your new account. Then, follow the course link bit.do/waporocw to enrol.

Description: Water Productivity and Water Accounting using WaPOR is an open online course targeting practitioners and academicians who are working in water resources management and related fields and have interest in applying open access remote sensing data and other open data to assess the water resources situation and water productivity and the extent to which water productivity increases have an effect on different water users in a river basin context. The main focus of the course will be on WaPOR data (https://wapor.apps.fao.org/home/WAPOR_2/1) but the methodology is applicable to similar remote sensing products.
