Kim Member of Team Awarded NOAA Bronze Medal Award

06.26.2020
A multi-agency group including Edward Kim (617) was recently awarded a NOAA Bronze Medal, the highest honor that can be granted by NOAA's administrator. The group also included Karen St. Germain, our new HQ Earth Science Division Director, Harry Cikanek, the Director of the NOAA Center for Satellite Applications and Research, Mitch Goldberg, JPSS Program Scientist, and Jeff Piepmeier (555), among others. The team was nominated by the Office of Under Secretary "for conducting a study on the potential effects of 5G interference on the 24GHz remote sensing band, and working closely with the NOAA Acting Administrator and Department of Commerce leadership to communicate the risks to satellite remote sensing and weather prediction if safeguards are not in place."

Goddard Space Flight Center airborne campaigns are highlighted in a recent Capital Weather Gang article in The Washington Post. The article describes the novel coronavirus's impact on scientific research and field campaigns.

ICESat-2’s Inland Water Data Product (ATL13), Version 2, released

12.15.2019
ICESat-2’s most recent Inland Water Data Product (ATL13 v2) was released in December 2019. ATL13 v2 now provides water height statistics, significant wave height, and associated subsurface data for global water bodies including lakes, reservoirs, estuaries, bays, and a 7 km near-shore buffer. In addition to more accurate products, ATL13 v2 further includes a new coarse resolution water depth product, where meteorology and water properties permit. Data products and supporting technical information are available from the National Snow and Ice Data Center.

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.
