For this reason, it is important to 1) estimate where, when, and how much irrigation water is used for agriculture, and 2) use this and other information to improve weather models.
The Atmospheric Sciences Research Center will host “Monitoring and Modeling of Irrigation for Improved Weather Prediction,” a virtual program set for August 23rd.
This talk will describe recent work in which NASA satellite data and models have played an essential role in the monitoring and modeling of irrigation, and in doing so, have helped to advance our understanding of human water management impacts on the Earth system.
This program will be led by Patricia Parker, Ph.D., Research Scientist, NASA Goddard Space Flight Center, Hydrological Sciences Laboratory, Greenbelt, Maryland.
This program will begin at 7 pm, and will be held via Zoom. For more information or to register, click here.
