5th Soil Moisture Workshop, 24-25 October 2018 at George Mason University, Fairfax Campus (Washington DC area) USA
This Soil Moisture Workshop series focuses on technical advances in the development, validation and application of global integrated soil moisture products that utilize satellite observations. The 5th workshop will emphasize soil moisture applications and bring together satellite, in situ, and model-based soil moisture information developers and users to focus on the derivation, validation and exploitation of soil moisture data from both passive and active microwave satellite missionsand electro-optical instruments. This upcoming workshop emphasizes the importance of integrated soil moisture data for meteorological, hydrological, agricultural, energy and ecological applications, such as for monitoring and early warning systems, modeling tools, and predictive and feedback capabilities. The scope of the 5th Soil Moisture Workshop includes:
- (1) Applications in Agriculture and Food Security;
- (2) Applications in Hydrology and Water Security;
- (3) Satellite Product Validation;
- (4) Spatial and Temporal Analysis of Soil Moisture; and
- (5) The Soil Moisture Demonstration Project (SMDP).
Capacity building is fundamental to all societal applications of integrated soil moisture datasets and will be addressed at the workshop. The SMAP Cal/Val workshop is also scheduled for 22-23, October 2018 at George Mason University, Fairfax Campus
as well. Abstract submission deadline is June 30, 2018. Selected papers will be published in peer review journals.
