AGU Chapman Conference on Remote Sensing of the Terrestrial Water Cycle

Kona, Hawaii, USA
19 –22 February 2012

Conference Objectives and General Description

New and emerging satellite missions will soon produce a more clear picture of the hydrosphere than ever before. It is necessary at this time to synthesize the current status of hydrologic remote sensing and determine what are the necessary next steps for the study of the water cycle. Targeted areas of interest include Precipitation, Snow and Cold Regions, Groundwater and Surface Water Storage, Soil Moisture, and Evapotranspiration. These topics areas are closely aligned with new or upcoming NASA and international satellite missions, and appropriate representatives will be sought to summarize their contribution to the overall study of the water cycle.
