Water Resource Management using NASA Earth Science Data (AM)

Description: 

Five webinar sessions (1 – hour each) on October 13, 20, 27; November 3, 10, 2015

Objectives: 

To provide 1) information about availability and access to global freshwater data for applications in drought and agricultural management, flooding and reservoir management from NASA remote sensing observations and land-atmosphere models and 2) GIS-based analysis of regional water budget for applications in water resources management.

Agenda:

Week-1: Overview of NASA Satellite Missions and Land-Atmosphere Models Relevant to Water Resources Management: NASA satellite missions useful for water resources observations, Global and North American Land Data Assimilation Models, Strengths and limitations of remote sensing- and model- based data, and Examples of water resources data applications 

Week-2: Precipitation and Soil Moisture Data: Satellites/sensors and models for precipitation (rain and snow), Satellites/sensors and models for soil moisture, Data access and applications

Week-3:  Run off /Streamflow and Reservoir Height Data: Run off and streamflow from hydrology and land-atmosphere models, Satellites/sensors for lake heights, data description, Data access and applications

Week-4:  Evapotranspiration and Ground Water Data: ET based on water-balance and Energy-balance techniques, Satellite/sensor for ground water, data description, Data access and applications

Week-5:  Regional Water Budget Estimation and Water Resources Data Applications: Water budget estimation over selected watersheds/river basins/countries using Land Data Assimilation Model, GIS-based analysis of water resources data applications
