Monitoring Hurricane Matthew

Hurricane Matthew ravaged the Caribbean and United States from late September to early October 2016. Earth observing satellites provide insights into Matthew's rapid intensification and fast decline. This show was designed for the NASA Hyperwall to be shown at the 2017 American Meteorlogical Society (AMS) Conference. The show highlight's NASA's GPM Core System that works hand-in-hand with numerous other datasets, including model runs.

Mission:
Global Precipitation Measurement (GPM)

Data Used:
MERRA-2/Winds
Model - 9/28/2016 - 10/9/2016
Surface Soil Moisture corrected with SMOS imagery and assimilated by the Ensemble Kalman Filter also referred to as: NASA-USDA-FAS Soil Moisture
Data Compilation - NASA and USDA - 9/28/2016 - 10/9/2016
The surface soil moisture product is corrected by integrating satellite-derived Soil Moisture Ocean Salinity (SMOS) mission surface soil moisture retrievals into the modified Palmer two-layer soil moisture model. The SMOS imagery helps to correct the modified Pal
