Hydrologic Remote Sensing : Capacity Building for Sustainability and Resilience Hardback
Environmental remote sensing plays a critical role in observing key hydrological components such as precipitation, soil moisture, evapotranspiration and total water storage on a global scale.
As water security is one of the most critical issues in the world, satellite remote sensing techniques are of particular importance for emerging regions which have inadequate in-situ gauge observations.
This book reviews multiple remote sensing observations, the application of remote sensing in hydrological modeling, data assimilation and hydrological capacity building in emerging regions. *Presents an overview of the past, current and future remote sensing observations of the precipitation, soil moisture, evapotranspiration and total water storage*Reviews the various applications of remote sensing in hydrological/land surface/climate modeling and Ensemble Square Root Filter (EnSRF) data assimilation*Demonstrates techniques to help reduce devastating disasters triggered by hydrological hazards such as floods and landslides*Explains how remote sensing, modeling and data assimilation can be utilized to improve societal resilience and environmental sustainability*Shows how to create real-time flood and drought monitoring systems
