Date and venue: Wednesday 28th April, 16:15, Geophysics Library, 5 Merrion Square, Dublin
Kevin Fleming of the Department of Spatial Sciences, Curtin University of Technology, Perth, Australia will regail an audience with tales of ‘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.
