Map of US -- SMAP Data

The latest guest blog, “How Do NASA Scientists Use the SMAP Satellite Data?” written by NASA SMAP scientists Dr. Erika Podest and Dr. Narendra Das of the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California, USA is now available on the GLOBE website.

Read how SMAP scientists are using soil moisture data to help us all better understand water’s role on Earth – including for weather prediction, drought, floods, agricultural productivity, and human health.

And, if you missed it, a recording of the GLOBE Program/SMAP Soil Moisture Field Campaign Webinar, entitled “Shout-out to, and Reporting by, the Top 3 Teams Collecting SMAP Block Pattern Soil Moisture Data During Month 1, which was held on 29 October 2015, is now available for viewing.

The NASA SMAP Soil Moisture Field Campaign began 1 October 2015 and will run through 30 April 2016. A SMAP Block Pattern Soil Moisture Protocol has been created so that GLOBE students can collect soil moisture measurements just like the SMAP satellite. With this campaign, GLOBE will offer webinars and blogs, as well ongoing interactions with NASA scientists.

Please join us in this exciting campaign! You can find all documents from this campaign here.
