A Sampling of Other Outreach Activities Undertaken by Researchers, related to this Project
The Sammis team is currently working with the University of California to evaluate the Remote-Sensing Tool for use by a large almond cooperate farm.
For the NASA Student Airborne Research Program, selected students from around the nation studied remote sensing from the ground as field assistants during the summer. Members of Whiting, Smart and Ustin Teams have participated during 2009, 2010 and 2011.
The data on soil water content and stem water potential is shared by the Shukla team with graduate students of soil physics classes.
Imagery and analysis techniques are shared by Prof. Whiting with UCD remote sensing courses as case studies.
Members of the Lombardini team demonstrated research methods of project to pecan growers in field demonstrations during the Texas A&M Pecan Short Course in February 2010.
Members of the Ustin Team are preparing an interactive map interface for data access via gadgets of location based data output of ETa and relevant weather and climate parameters. The service will offer similar capabilities to the current map interface for access of CIMIS based weather information data.
Members of the Ustin team are summarizing and simplifying WRF model output data to develop products more specific to the farmers to be made available as through the web based THREDDS tool, which offers complete file access, interactive data filtering, and web-based visualization services.
