Science and Applications Results Based on NASA Soil Moisture Active Passive (SMAP) Satellite Mission Measurements





Session ID#: 22435

Session Description:
NASA’s Soil Moisture Active Passive (SMAP) mission now has accumulated measurements from multiple northern hemisphere warm seasons and freeze/thaw cylces.  The global L-band radiometry from SMAP has enabled diverse scientific investigations in water, energy and carbon cycle research, terrestrial ecology and ocean science. These include eliciting the role of soil moisture control on the evaporation regime and vegetation gross primary productivity, observing soil-vegetation continuum water relations, analysis of flood and droughts, climate modeling and weather prediction, detecting ocean high-winds during tropical storms, and observing fresh-water outflow in coastal oceans. This session highlights the science uses of SMAP data across diverse elements of the Earth system.
