Advances in satellite Earth observation for drought and flood monitoring

Ringvorlesung
Einreichungs-/Anmeldefrist 18.04.2019
Referent/in: Prof. Dr. Jürgen Kusche, University of Bonn
Inhalt:

Extreme precipitation and record-long water deficit appear to push

regions into flooding and droughts more frequent than in the past, often

with disastrous consequences. Earth observation from space is routinely

being exploited for monitoring droughts and floods and supports numerous

forecast systems. However, imaging the Earth's surface is limited to

parameters such as rainfall and vegetation. In this presentation I will

discuss the potential of new satellite missions that begin to

operationally measure total water mass, and water levels in rivers,

lakes and reservoirs from space.
