Hydrologic Sciences and remote sensing
Hydrologic sciences and remote Sensing (HydSens) laboratory is an academic team in the Saint Anthony Falls Laboratory (SAFL) at the University of Minnesota.
The overarching goal is to better understand the physical laws of hydrologic water cycle and provide modern solutions for sustainability across water, food, and energy systems.
August 2019, Ardeshir is invited to present the results
of the HydSens' research on high-resolution retrievals
of soil moisture and vegetation optical depth from space at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory.
July 2019, Ardeshir received an Editor Award from the American Meteorological Society (AMS). The award presentation will take place in 100th AMS annual meeting.
June 2019, Lun Gao received a prestigious
3-years fellowship from the Future Investigators
in NASA Earth and Space Science and
Technology (FINESST) program to advance
algorithms for improved retrievals of soil
moisture and vegetation water content from
March 2018, Ardeshir Ebtehaj received an early career award from the NASA's New Investigator Program (NIP) in earth science to advance the knowledge in microwave retrieval of snowfall from space for improved prediction of extreme snowstorms.
