Description of scientific projects
The goals of this program are to integrate satellite and surface-based observations of land surface processes into products that can be useful for meteorological and climatological applications research and development. Research activities include the mutli-sensor assessment of urban heat islands, monitoring vegetation conditions and characteristics related to climatic conditions, assessment of land use/land cover associated with surface-based observation networks, and the use of satellite-derived information on land surface characteristics in numerical forecast models. Satellite data from the Advanced Very High Resolution Radiometer, Landsat, MODIS, and Defense Meteorological Satellite Program systems are available for analysis with surface observations and ancillary geographic information.
