  Information - HS3 Space observations and field experiments

Event Information
This session will bring together research in hydrological remote sensing with emphasis on recent satellite data and field experiments. There have been several new satellites launched in the last 5 years, e.g. Grace, Envisat, Terra and Aqua, which have sensors that make observations of hydrologically relevant parameters. In addition there have been numerous field experiments which have brought together data measured from different platforms, including tower-, aircraft-, and satellite-based measurements. Contributions are encouraged that examine the results from these varied measurements from the satellites and the field experiments, the use of remote sensing in hydrology, the integration of remotely sensed measurements with measurements at different scales, and application of remote sensing methods to surface water problems. Previous sessions have covered such diverse topics as: land cover/ land use, snow cover, surface water and rivers, components of the surface energy balance etc.
Papers on the results from the field experiments conducted in support of the upcoming Soil Moisture and Ocean Salinity (SMOS) mission are encouraged.
