Introduction


This portion of the SHyMet course introduces a variety of ways that remote sensing data can be used for hydrologic applications. First, satellite products useful in hydrology are identified. Then examples of using remote sensing data for monitoring cumulative precipitation, surface thermal properties, surface moisture, vegetation, water supply, snow, ice, flooding, and land use are presented.

Learning objectives:

  • Identify satellite products useful in hydrology.
  • Become familiar with remote sensing applications for hydrometeorology.
  • Understand uses of remote sensing data for operational hydrology.
  • Identify watershed characteristics from satellite data.
