Eastern Snow Conference 2019

I’m excited for the 2019 Eastern Snow Conference meeting! You can find a draft paper written in support of the poster presentation here The final poster is available here.

Discharge estimates for AirSWOT data, with 1 SD error bars provided for BAM and MetroMan (DassFlow does not generate a discharge uncertainty estimate).  USGS data (black line) is shown with  ±10% relative uncertainty (grey area).

New paper by Steve T

One goal of the Measuring the Water Cycle research group is to improve global estimates of river discharge by utilizing remote sensing data to fill gaps in gaging networks. With currently available data, this is a hard problem: the satellite…

Apoorva Shastry has just had a paper accepted in Frontiers. Describing it, she writes: According to the World Disasters Report, over 59,000 people were killed with 865 million people directly affected by floods between 2005 and 2014. The economic damages…

Group member Jinmei Pan works with Glen Liston (CIRES) and Carrie Vuyovich (NASA) to measure snow properties including specific surface area (SSA) at SnowEx 2017, Grand Mesa, Colorado.

Graduate Research Assistant Position Open

The “Measuring the Water Cycle” group has an open position in snow remote sensing. The position is related to SnowEx (NASA GSFC page, Eos piece), a multi-year airborne and field experiment to explore methods of remote sensing snow water equivalent…
