Joint Poster Session 3 Remote Sensing Applications in Hydrology Posters

Monday, 11 January 2016: 2:30 PM-4:00 PM
New Orleans Ernest N. Morial Convention Center
Hosts: (Joint between the 30th Conference on Hydrology; and the 20th Conference on Integrated Observing and Assimilation Systems for the Atmosphere, Oceans, and Land Surface (IOAS-AOLS) )
Chairperson/Person in Charge:
David J. Gochis, NCAR, Research Applications Laboratory, Boulder, CO
Christopher Hain, University of Maryland, Earth System Science Interdisciplinary Center, Camp Springs, MD and John B. Eylander, US Army Corps of Engineers, Engineer Research and Development Center, Cold Regions Research and Engineering Lab, Hanover, NH

The session will focus on science and applications of remote sensing in land surface hydrologic sciences. The remotely sensed measurements related to hydrological parameters are from satellite, radar, airborne, or other platforms. We are hoping to increase the discussions on: (1) the current and future requirements for the data sets; (2) the current state of the science for measuring hydrologic parameters using remote sensing platforms; (3) how hydrological models or downstream applications use the remotely sensed data products for decision support; (4) areas where current science methodology does not adequately address the needs of the broader hydrologic community; and (5) new methods and/or new remote sensing technologies that offer potential for improving hydrologic (including land surface parameter) remote sensing.
