2010-04-28 – SEMINAR by Kevin Fleming: Earth Observation Satellites and Australian hydrology

28 April, 2010 (16:15 GMT), 5 Merrion Square, Dublin 2.

Speaker: Kevin Fleming, Curtin University of Technology, Perth, Australia.
Title: Earth Observation Satellites and Australian hydrology.


Earth Observation Satellites are a very useful tool in assessing the environment of Australia, given its vast area, range of climates and large areas without ground truth data. This seminar examines observations from two satellites: the Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission, and the Gravity Recovery and Climate Experiment. These are being used within a research program at Curtin University to assess changes in the terrestrial water storage of Australia.
