  • This study developed a reliable and simple model that predicts the natural flow of the Upper Mekong, then used this prediction to determine how the cascade of dams built on the Upper Mekong is altering the natural flow of the river. The foundation of this study is based on satellite data from 1992 to 2019 and daily river height gauge data from Chiang Saen, Thailand.

  • Summarizing wetness anomalies in the Mekong River Delta in the 2019 wet season.

  • This paper introduces wetness and temperature products as important factors in decision and policy making, especially in regions with sparse surface observations, and further suggests that near real-time satellites observations can be used to mitigate the adverse impacts ofextreme events and promote climate resilience.

  • Discusses numerous potential applications of surface wetness observations throughout the globe, and explores detailed observations of satellite data.

  • Working with the The World Bank Development Research Group, EOE studied the Increased effects floods and droughts would have economic and political forces. Discusses the use of gauge station runoff with wetness values derived from satellite data (1988-2010), for expanding sub-basin stream flow information to the entire river.

  • To obtain higher resolution over the global land surface, satellite observations need to be blended with in situ data. This study explroes an an algorithm that derives land surface temperatures from the Special Sensor Microwave/Imager (SSM/I), explaining the technique used to refine a set of equations that identify various surface types and to make corresponding dynamic emissivity adjustments.
