Sensitivity of Distributed Hydrologic Simulations to Ground and Satellite Based Rainfall Products
In this study, seven precipitation products (rain gauges, NEXRAD MPE, PERSIANN 0.25 degree, PERSIANN CCS-3hr, PERSIANN CCS-1hr, TRMM 3B42V7, and CMORPH) were used to force a physically-based distributed hydrologic model. ...
LiDAR-Based Solar Mapping for Distributed Solar Plant Design and Grid Integration in San Antonio, Texas
This study represents advancements in the state-of-the-art of the solar energy industry by leveraging LiDAR-based building characterization for city-wide, distributed solar photovoltaics, solar maps, highlighting the ...
Imaging Floods and Glacier Geohazards with Remote Sensing
Geohazards associated with the dynamics of the liquid and solid water of the Earth's hydrosphere, such as floods and glacial processes, may pose significant risks to populations, activities and properties [...]
An On-Demand Service for Managing and Analyzing Arctic Sea Ice High Spatial Resolution Imagery
Sea ice acts as both an indicator and an amplifier of climate change. High spatial resolution (HSR) imagery is an important data source in Arctic sea ice research for extracting sea ice physical parameters, and ...
Flash Flood Risk Analysis Based on Machine Learning Techniques in the Yunnan Province, China
Flash flood, one of the most devastating weather-related hazards in the world, has become more and more frequent in past decades. For the purpose of flood mitigation, it is necessary to understand the distribution of flash ...
Ice Production in Ross Ice Shelf Polynyas during 2017–2018 from Sentinel–1 SAR Images
High sea ice production (SIP) generates high-salinity water, thus, influencing the global thermohaline circulation. Estimation from passive microwave data and heat flux models have indicated that the Ross Ice Shelf polynya ...
Sea Ice Freeboard in the Ross Sea from Airborne Altimetry IcePod 2016–2017 and a Comparison with IceBridge 2013 and ICESat 2003–2008
As part of the Polynyas and Ice Production in the Ross Sea (PIPERS) project, the IcePod system onboard the LC-130 aircraft based at McMurdo Station was flown over the Ross Sea, Antarctica in November 2016 and 2017, with ...
Assessing Scale Dependence on Local Sea Level Retrievals from Laser Altimetry Data over Sea Ice
The measurement of sea ice elevation above sea level or the "freeboard" depends upon an accurate retrieval of the local sea level. The local sea level has been previously retrieved from altimetry data alone by the lowest ...
Correction: Zhu, S., et al. A New Digital Lake Bathymetry Model Using the Step-Wise Water Recession Method to Generate 3D Lake Bathymetric Maps Based on DEMs. Water 2019, 11, 1151
In the published article , the authors realized some errors in the affiliation and email address of Yang Hong, and thus wish to make the following revisions: [...]
Estimation of Snow Depth over the Qinghai-Tibetan Plateau Based on AMSR-E and MODIS Data
Snow cover over the Qinghai-Tibetan Plateau (QTP) plays an important role in climate, hydrological, and ecological systems. Currently, passive microwave remote sensing is the most efficient way to monitor snow depth on ...
