Earth Expeditions: A Breathtaking View – Literally

02.19.2020
After visiting with part of the SnowEx 2020 airborne team, we headed up the mountain to rendezvous with the ground team, stationed at Grand Mesa Lodge.

Earth Expeditions: Snow Science Two Miles in the Sky

02.18.2020
At a majestic 10,500 feet elevation, Grand Mesa is the world’s tallest mesa, or flat-topped mountain. It’s also the site of an intense month of data collection by NASA’s SnowEx 2020, a ground and airborne campaign testing a variety of instruments that measure the water contained in winter snowpack.

Bolten Interviewed on ABC Radio National

02.12.2020
Dr. John Bolten gave a live interview for the Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC) Radio National Late Night Live story, "Disappearing Water." He discussed the efforts by NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center and NASA's Applied Sciences Program to monitor and address the Australian wildfires. He also discussed SMAP and GRACE applications for improved water resource management and activities by NASA's Earth Science Division to study changing climate and extreme events.

Overview

The Hydrological Sciences Laboratory examines the role of water in the Earth system. Laboratory researchers strive to better understand, quantify, and analyze the hydrological cycle and to measure hydrological processes in order to improve prediction of the response of global hydrology to anthropogenic and/or natural climate change.

Special emphasis is placed on land surface hydrological processes and their interactions with the atmosphere. Laboratory scientists develop remote-sensing and modeling techniques to investigate how the various components of the hydrological cycle interact over a broad range of spatial and temporal scales.
