Call For Abstracts: Using Remote Sensing to Improve Water Management

By Amber Jenkins

NASA’s Western Water Applications Office is hosting a session at the 2022 American Geophysical Union (AGU) Fall Meeting this December, jointly with NASA's Applied Sciences Water Resources Program. Part of the conference’s hydrology track, our session is on the topic of Using Remote Sensing to Improve Water Management.

Satellite data is increasingly used to support decision-making for water resources management, complementing and enhancing in-situ data to make important decisions. Managing water is challenging due to rising demand, climate change and population growth. This session explores use of remotely-sensed Earth observations (EO) to inform water decisions. Recent advances in sensor technology, satellite data products and modeling have improved monitoring of key parts of the water cycle including precipitation, soil moisture, evapotranspiration, snow, irrigation and groundwater. Presentations will highlight advances in water management through the innovative use of EO and modeling, and strategies for delivering impactful solutions to decision makers.

This year's AGU Fall Meeting will be held in Chicago and online 12 - 16 December 2022. The deadline to submit abstracts is 3 August 2022 at 11:59 PM ET. Visit the abstract portal to submit an abstract.
