Statement: Dartmouth Flood Observatory: Space-based Measurement of Surface Water
Abstract: The Dartmouth Flood Observatory uses orbital remote sensing to detect, measure, and map river discharge and river flooding. Water discharge is measured by the River Watch processor, based on a feed of NASA AMSR-E satellite microwave data. It produces a remote sensing signal that tracks river discharge at 2500+ carefully selected river measurement sites. Flooding is monitored by the MODIS sensors, to map floods as they occurred.
