Recent years have seen the proliferation of remote-sensing measurement systems that have application to hydro-meteorology and hydrology, from the ability to better assess regional drought conditions, to improved global snow/ice pack estimates, to higher resolution soil-moisture (active/passive) and QPE estimation, among others. This session solicits papers that overlap these and related remote-sensing applications with the broader overall meeting theme "Observations Lead the Way" while focusing on both situational awareness and hydrological forecasting. Papers that report on statistical and dynamic-model uses of the data (e.g. data-assimilation) as well as the novel use of very recent measurement methods encouraged, as well as scales that may range from small basin hydrology to regional/continental applications.
