Location: Dominican Republic
Partners: NASA’s DEVELOP Program and Landslide Team
NASA’s DEVELOP Program has the mission of integrating earth observations with society to foster future innovation and cultivate the processionals of tomorrow by addressing diverse environmental impacts today. As part of this program, NASA’s DEVELOP and Landslides Team worked with the Servicio Geológico Nacional and Oficina Nacional de Meteorología of the Dominican Republic to integrate various earth observation data sets and local data to map landslide susceptibility and exposure of infrastructure in parts of the northern region. BGC supported the NASA team with providing local knowledge on geology and landslide mapping to support calibration of these models.
