Description

Abstract:

Advances in remote sensing technology (collection, data management, and analysis) are allowing development of water management procedures that are beneficial due to the spatial and historical coverage this technology can provide for the state of Utah. The remote sensing technology (from UAV/drones to satellites) is already intensively used in several US western states and USU research. In this presentation we introduce some of the current and incoming remote sensing research and products at UWRL as well some of the synergistics efforts in place that can benefit management of water resources in the state of Utah.
