Our session calls for papers exploring novel ways of monitoring/modeling of hydrologic cycle/components based on remote sensing and GIScience, as well as its applications in various areas, such as flood reduction, water resources management, etc..
The monitoring and modeling of hydrologic components, such as precipitation, evapotranspiration, soil moisture content, etc. are vital for human health, water resources management, flood control, etc.. They are also important data inputs to other ecological models. The traditional ways of monitoring hydrologic components are based on on-site observations, which are limited to small spatial scales. The readily-available remote sensing data integrated with GIScience provide an alternative way for monitoring hydrologic components in large spatial scales.
