Abstract The current influx of climate related information required scientists to communicate their findings to decision makers in governments, disaster preparedness organizations, and the general public. The Soil and Water Assessment Tool (SWAT) is a powerful modelling tool that allows scientists to simulate many of the physical processes involved in the water cycle. This article presents the design, methods and development efforts to overcome some of the limitations of the previously developed...

Information is a critical resource in disaster response scenarios. Data regarding the geographic extent, severity, and socioeconomic impacts of a disaster event can help guide emergency responders and relief operations, particularly when delivered within hours of data acquisition. Information from remote observations provides a valuable tool for assessing conditions ‘on the ground’ more quickly and efficiently. Here, we evaluate the social value of a near real-time flood impact system using a di...

Over the past two decades, remote sensing has made possible the routine global monitoring of surface soil moisture. Regional agricultural drought monitoring is one of the most logical application areas for such monitoring. However, remote sensing alone provides soil moisture information for only the top few centimeters of the soil profile, while agricultural drought monitoring requires knowledge of the amount of water present in the entire root zone. The assimilation of remotely sensed soil mois...

Global food production depends upon many factors that Earth observing satellites routinely measure about water, energy, weather, and ecosystems. Increasingly sophisticated, publicly available satellite data products can improve efficiencies in resource management and provide earlier indication of environmental disruption. Satellite remote sensing provides a consistent, long-term record that can be used effectively to detect large-scale features over time, such as a developing drought. Accuracy a...
