WASCAL in collaboration with NASA and the University of Missouri – Kansas City, will be conducting a Capacity Building Workshop on „Interdisciplinary Remote Sensing, Modeling, and Validation of Environmental Processes“ from June 12 -23, 2017. This workshop, primarily sponsored by the International Committee on Space Research (COSPAR) and WASCAL, is aimed at enabling that extensive knowledge base, capacity, and results developed under major international research programmes/projects to be transferred to young professionals and graduate students in West Africa. By interacting very closely, during a period of two weeks, with experienced professionals in space-based interdisciplinary research, which is in its infancy in West Africa, these young scientists will be equipped to pursue similar collaborative scientific research paradigms within their regions. This will provide an excellent avenue to maximize the societal benefits that result from such interdisciplinary research...
