Alicia Joseph (617) was featured in a Climate People Profile for her multifaceted work on soil moisture, STEM engagement and leadership of the MAINSES program.

SLAP in Spain for LIAISE Field Campaign

07.16.2021
Goddard's Scanning L-band Active Passive (SLAP) airborne soil moisture sensor is participating in the European Land surface Interactions with the Atmosphere over the Iberian Semi-arid Environment (LIAISE) campaign, with applications to Planetary Boundary Layer and related science. Ed Kim (617), Hessam Izadkhah (617/Aerotek), Albert Wu (61A/ATA Aerospace), and NASA Langley's B200 aircraft are currently in Spain for the campaign.

Earth Matters Blog: NASA Supports Drought Resilience in the American West

07.13.2021
The American West is in the grip of an exceptional drought. Following one of the planet’s hottest years on record — and with rainfall and snowfall in the western U.S. well below average — water managers, policymakers, government agencies, and scientists are facing strapped water supplies and anticipating potentially devastating wildfires.

Overview

The Hydrological Sciences Laboratory examines the role of water in the Earth system. Laboratory researchers strive to better understand, quantify, and analyze the hydrological cycle and to measure hydrological processes in order to improve prediction of the response of global hydrology to anthropogenic and/or natural climate change.

Special emphasis is placed on land surface hydrological processes and their interactions with the atmosphere. Laboratory scientists develop remote-sensing and modeling techniques to investigate how the various components of the hydrological cycle interact over a broad range of spatial and temporal scales.
