Research Project: Enhancing the USDA Global Crop Production Decision Support System with Nasa Land Information System and Water Cycle Satellite Observations

Location: Hydrology and Remote Sensing Laboratory

Project Number: 1245-13610-028-10
Project Type: Reimbursable

Start Date: Jan 01, 2010
End Date: Jan 31, 2014

Objective:
Enhance USDA FAS crop yield forecasts via the use of remote sensing and data assimilation technologies.

Approach:
Apply an Ensemble Kalman filter to the assimilation of AMSR-E soil moisture retrievals into the USDA FAS land surface model. Development contingency plans for the discontinuity of AMSR-E data and apply the NASA LIS modeling system.
