Transcript

  • 1. 2  Vanessa  M.  Escobar,  Sigma  Space,  NASA,  GSFC  
  • 2. SMAP  will  provide  high-­‐resolu5on,   frequent-­‐revisit  global  mapping  of  soil   moisture  and  freeze/thaw  state  to   enable  science  and  applica5ons  users   to:     Understand  processes  that  link  the  terrestrial   water,  energy  and  carbon  cycles   Freeze/thaw state   Es5mate  global  water  and  energy  fluxes  at  the   land  surface       Quan5fy  net  carbon  flux  in  boreal  landscapes       Enhance  weather  and  climate  forecast  skill       Develop  improved  flood  predic5on  and   drought  monitoring  capability     3  Vanessa  M.  Escobar,  Sigma  Space,  NASA,  GSFC  
  • 3. Objec&ve:    To  increase  and  sustain  the  interac&on   between  applica&ons,  users  and  scien&st  involved   in  mission  development   •  The  Program  funds  projects  that  will  enable  innova5ve  uses  of   NASA  Earth  science  data  in  organiza5ons  policy,  business,  and   management  decisions.     •  Project  results  can  enhance  decision-­‐making,  improve  the   quality  of  life  and  strengthen  the  economy.   •  The  Program’s  porQolio  of  projects  deliver  results  7  areas  of   na5onal  priority,  including:    Air  Quality            Climate                  Disasters    Ecological  Forecas5ng      Public  Health              Weather    Water  Resources   4  Vanessa  M.  Escobar,  Sigma  Space,  NASA,  GSFC  
  • 4. •  Publicizes  the  mission’s  goals  and    objec5ves   •  Defines  its  data  products  for  a  broad  audience   •  Iden&fies  communi5es  of  poten5al  users  in  the   scien5fic,  opera5onal  and  policy  domains   •  Engages  user  communi5es  to  solicit  informa5on  on   poten5al  uses  of  mission  data   •  Facilitate  and  sponsor  research  programs  between   the  SDT  and  the  user  community  to  ensure  rapid   and  effec5ve  uptake  of  mission  data  upon  launch   •  Builds  bridges  between  the  users  and  the  scien5st   so  the  informa5on  exchange  can  be  an  on  going   process   5  Vanessa  M.  Escobar,  Sigma  Space,  NASA,  GSFC  
  • 5. The  SMAP  mission  has  two  different  community  of   scien5sts,  policy  makers  and  analysts  who  may  be   interested  in  using  SMAP  data  products.     •  Community  of  Prac&ce  –users  who  will  partner   to  op5mize  their  use  of  pilot  products  as  part  of   their  current  scien5fic,  decision  making  or  policy   development  ac5vi5es;  and       •  Community  of  Poten&al  -­‐  users  that  are   unfamiliar  with  the  capabili5es  of  SMAP  data  but   have  the  poten5al  to  benefit  from  the  products  in   their  applica5on  or  science   6  Vanessa  M.  Escobar,  Sigma  Space,  NASA,  GSFC  
  • 6. A  SMAP  Applica5ons  Working  Group  (AppWG)   has  been  developed  to  iden5fy  poten5al   models,  programs  and  processes  that  will   benefit  from  SMAP  data  across  agencies  and   develops  partnerships  to  op5mize  and   improve  these  processes  in  prepara5on  for   the  eventual  availability  of  the  data     7  Vanessa  M.  Escobar,  Sigma  Space,  NASA,  GSFC  
  • 7.  Stephane  Belair  (Environment  Canada):Impact  Evalua5on  of  Observa5ons  from   SMAP  Mission  in  Environment  Canada’s  Predic5ve  Systems  (CaLDAS)      Dr.  Lars  Isaksen  and  Dr.  Patricia  de  Rosnay  (ECMWF):  Implementa5on  of  SMAP   brightness  temperature  and  soil  moisture  at  ECMWF    Dr.  Xiwu  Zhan  (NOAA):  Transi5on  of  NASA  SMAP  research  to  NOAA  Opera5onal   Numerical  Weather  and  Seasonal  Climate  Predic5ons  and  Research  Hydrological   Forecast      Dr.  Hosni  Ghedira  (Masdar  Ins&tute,  UAE):  Es5ma5ng  and  Mapping  the  Extent  of   Saharan  Dust  Emissions  Using  SMAP  –derived  soil  moisture  data      Dr.  Zhengwei  Yang/Mr.  Rick  Mueller  (USDA  NASS)  :    U.S.  Na5onal  Cropland  Soil   Moisture  Monitoring  Using  SMAP    Dr.  Catherine  Champagne  (Agriculture  and  Agri-­‐food    Canada):  Soil  Moisture   Monitoring  in  Canada      Dr.  Amor  Ines  and  Dr.  Stephen  Zebiak  (IRI):  SMAP  for  Crop  Cas5ng  and  Food  security   Early  Warning  Applica5on   8  Vanessa  M.  Escobar,  Sigma  Space,  NASA,  GSFC  
  • 8.   SDT  is  the  key  underlining  support  for  the  SMAP   Applica5ons  Program      SDT  provides  coordina5on,  leadership  and  guidance  for   the  program     SMAP  Applica5ons  works  within  SDT  to  coordinated  and     define  user  communi5es,  applied  science  projects,  data   distribu5on,  and  other  ac5vi5es  of  the  program   9  Vanessa  M.  Escobar,  Sigma  Space,  NASA,  GSFC
