Training can be done with your team altogether or individually on their own time using the online training tools. Have each team member complete the assessments to make sure they understand the protocols.   (Approximately 1 hour.)

The four protocols are explained on the pages here:
The Cloud protocol
The Surface Temperature protocol
The Precipitation protocol
The Soil Moisture Active Passive (SMAP) protocol

Some additional (optional) materials are available to augment your training process if helpful.


Determine which protocols are a good fit for you or your organization and location. (Fifteen minutes.)


Complete the assessment located here. (Five-eight minutes.)
