H103:
Remote Sensing and Modeling of the Terrestrial Water Cycle





Session ID#: 23042

Session Description:
Hydrologic models and remote sensing are essential tools for studying the changing nature of the terrestrial water cycle and its various components. Advances in the areas of remote sensing and modeling allowed the integration of these two approaches and the use of multiple sensors and variables simultaneously to better understand the spatial and temporal dynamics of the water cycle and the available water resources at various scales. Some of the major missions proven valuable for hydrologic modeling include SMOS, AMSR-E/AMSR2 and SMAP for soil moisture; TRMM and GPM for precipitation; TOPEX and SWOT (planned) for water level; AIRS/AMSU for atmospheric water vapor and air temperature profiles; GRACE for water storage changes and MODIS for vegetation and surface temperature. We invite multi-scale, multi-variable and multi-sensor studies that use remote sensing techniques and modeling approaches to assess the spatiotemporal variability in water resources and study the terrestrial water cycle.
