H047:
Emerging Technologies for Hydrologic Remote Sensing





Session ID#: 26397

Session Description:
In recent decades, hydrologic remote sensing data has mostly been acquired from low-earth orbit or geostationary satellites sponsored by large governmental organizations such as NASA or ESA. While tremendously beneficial, these data sources have the downside of being expensive to develop and generally limited in number. Further, spaceborne orbital considerations often impose a tradeoff between temporal and spatial resolution. In recent years, several emerging technologies have matured to the point of viability for hydrologic research, including, but not limited to, unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), Cubesats and other novel satellited-based sensing systems (e.g. video), as well as signals of opportunity such as crowd-sourced data or GNSS-R. These and related platforms have the potential to dramatically lower costs and enhance the spatial and temporal fidelity of hydrologic observations. This session aims to bring together studies that demonstrate the development, validation or use of such emerging technologies for hydrologic research.
