Abstract This study evaluates eight Satellite-derived Precipitation Estimate (SPE) datasets, which include uncorrected SPE and gauge-corrected SPE products from Tropical Rainfall Measurement Mission Multi-satellite Precipitation Analysis (TMPA), Global Precipitation Measurement (GPM), Climate Hazards group Infrared Precipitation (CHIRP), and Precipitation Estimation form Remotely Sensed Information using Artificial Neural Networks (PERSIANN). These datasets are utilized with six representative r...

An understanding of streamflow variability and its response to changes in climate conditions is essential for water resource planning and management practices that will help to mitigate the impacts of extreme events such as floods and droughts on agriculture and other human activities. This study investigated the relationship between precipitation, soil moisture, and streamflow over a wide range of watersheds across the United States using Google Earth Engine (GEE). The correlation analyses disc...

From an agricultural perspective, drought refers to a deficiency of plant available water in the root-zone of the soil profile. This paper focuses on evaluating the benefit of assimilating soil moisture retrievals from the Soil Moisture Active Passive (SMAP) mission into the USDA-FAS Palmer model for agricultural drought monitoring. To this end, the skill of the SMAP-enhanced Palmer model is assessed over three agricultural regions that have experienced major drought since the launch of SMAP in ...

The Lower Mekong Basin (LMB) is biologically diverse, economically important, and home to over 60 million people. The region has undergone extensive environmental changes due to multiple factors, including agricultural expansion and intensification, deforestation, more river damming, increased urbanization, growing human populations, expansion of industrial forest plantations, plus frequent natural disasters from flooding and drought. The Mekong river is also heavily used for human transportatio...

The present study is to explore the feasibility of GRACE‐based estimation of a groundwater storage change in a data‐poor region using a case study of the Ngadda catchment in the Lake Chad Basin. Although the Ngadda catchment has only one set of in situ time series data of groundwater from 2006 to 2009 and a limited number of groundwater measurements in 2005 and 2009, GRACE‐based groundwater storage change can be evaluated against the in situ groundwater measurements combined with specific yield ...

Abstract. Winter cover crops have been shown to limit erosion and nutrient runoff from agricultural land. To promote their usage, the Maryland Department of Agriculture (MDA) subsidizes farmers who plant cover crops. Conventional verification of cover crop planting and analysis of subsequent crop performance requires on-the-ground fieldwork, which is costly and labor intensive. In partnership with the MDA, NASA's DEVELOP program utilized imagery from Landsat 5, Landsat 8, and the European Space ...

Socially and economically costly extreme weather events have become more prevalent in the last decade. Monitoring and early warning systems could help mitigate the impact of such events by allowing people to better prepare themselves to manage their responses to these events. One significant element of an effective warning system is soil moisture because it is a key determinant of the exchange of water and heat energy between the land and atmosphere, the partitioning of precipitation between inf...
