Back to Ag & Climate Workspace



  • David Augustine (USDA ARS) to discuss use case(s).
    • 2 Ideas proposed:

1. LTAR increase on soil moisture - hydrology and water retention : network of soil moisture sensors (experimental cattle ranch) Lot of work could do to fill in gaps between satellite and ground 2. Also how much could learn from the combination of soil moisture and satellite combo with cattle weight gain. (temporal variation) Spatial resolution of the different products? Gridded products are all in the quarter tenth degree

    • What would be the coarsest resolution?: 1.5 Km or 1 mile
    • Most producers don't have what they have - establish these relationships first
    • Site has: 3 met stations 4 miles apart 16000 acres 25 stations just do soil moisture
    • Think we can work to establish relationships between - at large scales extrapolation- not at small scale - at climate hubs and drought mitigation center
    • Could use some of the stations as test sites
    • Talking about how to get the data -capturing that within spreadsheet
    • Bill to send spreadsheet and examples to David Augustine

Showed the group the areas completed within the spreadsheet

Call for other ideas to discuss during the meeting One thought: Obstacles of data resolution in application to other endeavors What have people done with that in the past? Others?
