AGU 100 Fall Meeting - NASA Harvest Session

Event Details

GC039 - Four Decades and Counting: NASA Earth Observations and Agricultural Monitoring

Beginning with the launch of ERTS-1 (Landsat 1) in 1972, NASA has been continuously investing in satellite missions and the enabling methodologies and systems to utilize their data for agricultural assessment and monitoring.  In 2017, NASA continued this through the establishment of the NASA Harvest Consortium and its agency-wide Food Security Office. Their objectives are to advance the use of Earth observations for enhanced food security and improved agricultural assessments and practices. NASA EO data, applications, and Harvest activities touch vast swaths of the global agricultural community.

This session invites abstracts that demonstrate the utilization of or showcase the impact of NASA data, services, and tools for agricultural monitoring and assessment. Perspectives from researchers through end users are welcome toward weaving a cohesive narrative of the impact of NASA Earth on global agriculture and food security while identifying challenges and opportunities for enhancing the use of EO for agricultural monitoring.
