OpenTEAM In-Depth – Remote Sensing Methods for Measuring Soil Organic Carbon at the Field Scale

Presenters: Sam Bennetts, Gisel Booman, & Sophia Leiker from ReGen Network As innovation continues to drive improvements in soil sampling technologies, methods used to monitor ecosystem health are constantly changing. New methods to quantify soil carbon and other soil health indicators using remote sensing technologies have emerged. This presentation will give an overview of remote sensing technologies and provide an example of how they can be applied with Regen Network’s remote sensing approach to quantify soil organic carbon using satellite imagery and minimum ground truth data. The presentation will be followed by a short Q&A around all things remote sensing.
