The importance of water requires no preamble. As a nation and a global community, our ability to measure and predict water in all its forms and locations must improve to better assess and understand our changing environment and demands of human society and ecosystems. Research is sought to make such improvements on our understanding of the land-oriented portion of the water cycle, either by improving and/or exploiting current satellite data, describing requirements of future satellite systems, or improving and/or creating new remote sensing algorithms with an eye towards future satellites.
Deadline: Notice of intent due May 24, 2017. Proposal due July 12, 2017.
