RIDESAT: Monitoraggio fluviale da rilevamento satellitare

project-RIDESAT-evidenza Sebbene rappresenti meno dell'1% della quantità totale di acqua sulla Terra, l'acqua dolce è essenziale per la vita terrestre e per i bisogni umani. Nonostante le esistenti reti di misura a terra rappresentino un valido strumento per quantificare il volume istantaneo di acqua in molti canali fluviali, la conoscenza delle dinamiche spaziali e temporali della portata superficiale è ancora scarsa e incompleta. Si rende necessario pertanto ...

GLOBAL SM2RAIN: A new independent GLOBAL rainfall product from ASCAT soil moisture observations through SM2RAIN

project-EUMETSAT_GLOBAL_SM2RAIN-evidenza Accurate rainfall estimates are of paramount importance as rainfall plays a key-role in many fields as, to cite a few, natural hazard assessment (floods and landslides), drought management, weather forecasting, agriculture and diseases prevention. State-of-the-art rainfall products obtained by satellites are often the only way for measuring rainfall in remote areas of the ...

SMOS+RAINFALL II: SMOS+RAINFALL II

project-rainfallii-evidenza La stima della precipitazione è vitale nel campo della meteorologia, idrologia and gestione delle risorse idriche. Il progetto concluso SMOS+RAINFALL ha avuto come scopo principale quello di un miglioramento delle stime di precipitazione da satellite mediante l’uso di osservazioni satellitari di umidità del suolo derivate dalla missione Soil Moisture and Ocean Salinity mission (SMOS) utilizzando tre diverse tecniche. Le tre tecniche hanno ...

WACMOS-Irrigation: STSE Water Cycle Multi-mission Observation Strategy – Irrigation

evidenza-wacmos-desert-fields Irrigation is one of the greatest human intervention in the hydrological cycle. The knowledge of the distribution, the extent of irrigated areas and the amount of water used by irrigation is needed for different purposes: 1) modelling irrigation water requirements at the global scale, 2) assessing irrigated food production, 3) quantifying the impact of irrigation on climate, river discharge and groundwater depletion. Notwithstanding its ...

WACMOS-MED: STSE Water Cycle Multi-mission Observation Strategy for the Mediterranean

ESA_WACMOS_MED_IMMEV Monitoring the water cycle from satellite observations is one of the major goals of the EO community and closing the water budget has been a long-standing objective of international programs. After years of hard work, calibrating satellite data, improving inversion techniques, and facilitating the coherency of retrievals, it is admitted that the water cycle budget can now be ...

SMOS+RAINFALL

ESA_SMOS_RAINFALL_IMMEV Quantitative information about precipitation is one vital input to meteorologists, hydrologic scientists, water resources managers, and environmental legislators. Yet, accurate measurement of precipitation over the relevant space and time scales remains a challenge. Soil moisture can be seen as the trace of the precipitation and, consequently, can be useful for providing a way to estimate rainfall accumulation or at least a new constrain to ...

H-SAF AS: Integration of PR-OBS-5 and SM-OBS-1 products through SM2RAIN algorithm for improving rainfall estimate

HSAF_AS_SM2RAIN_IMMEV State-of-the-art satellite rainfall products are often the only way for measuring rainfall in remote areas of the world. However, these products may fail in properly reproducing the amount of precipitation reaching the ground, which is needed for hydrological applications. The integration of satellite soil moisture products is expected to significantly improve rainfall ...

37 YEARS OF SOIL MOISUTRE DERIVED RAINFALL: application of SM2RAIN to the CCI soil moisture product, algorithm improvement and product validation

ESA_CCI_VS_SM2RAIN_IMMEV Recently, IRPI-CNR has developed an innovative approach for estimating rainfall from satellite soil moisture data, named SM2RAIN. The ESA funded project “Climate Change Initiative - Soil Moisture“ (CCI-SM) offers a valuable opportunity for testing SM2RAIN algorithm to a continuous, homogenous, long-term (>30 years) soil moisture time series. Indeed, SM2RAIN has the chance to be tested not only for rainfall estimation but also as a ...

MEMpHIS: Multi Scale and Multi Hazard MApping Space Solutions

GIAMPILIERI map L’uso di metodologie innovative per il trattamento di dati SAR e ottici, combinato a dati ancillari, è in grado di fornire prodotti avanzati utili nell’ambito della valutazione della pericolosità da frana e pericolosità ...

Use of SMAP soil moisture products for operational flood forecasting: data assimilation and antecedent wetness conditions assessment

SMAP_EA_IMMEV The project aims at using Soil Moisture Active and Passive (SMAP) soil moisture (SM) products at different spatial resolution (3, 9, and 36 km) for hydrological applications in Europe (mainly in ...
