MERGING AMSR-E HYDROMETEOR DATA WITH COASTAL RADAR DATA FOR SHORT-TERM HIGH-RESOLUTION FORECASTS OF HURRICANE IVAN TIME: Thurs.
Under a new NASA-USDA collaboration known as the Global Agriculture Monitoring Project, Bolten and colleagues from the USDA's Agricultural Research Service are using AMSR-E to fill the data gaps with daily soil moisture "snapshots.
Bolten says that results from AMSR-E are just a precursor to dramatic new improvements in data and prediction accuracy researchers expect from the Soil Moisture Active and Passive satellite, slated to launch in 2013.
