Marena Oklahoma In Situ Sensor Testbed Workshop

June 4-7, 2018, Lincoln, NE

You are cordially invited to the campus of the University of Nebraska-Lincoln in Lincoln, Nebraska, for “The 2018 Workshop at MOISST: From Soil Moisture Observations to Actionable Decisions”. This annual workshop is an initiative of a community of researchers that developed from the Marena, Oklahoma, In Situ Sensor Testbed, or MOISST, established near Stillwater, Oklahoma, in 2010 to support NASA’s SMAP satellite mission. The workshop provides a unique opportunity for leaders in soil moisture research and development to exchange ideas and develop collaborations. This year’s workshop will include special sessions on the National Drought Mitigation Center and on the National Soil Moisture Network, an ongoing initiative to develop a system that integrates diverse sources of soil moisture observations including federal and state in-situ monitoring networks, satellite remote sensing missions, and numerical models. Please register on the 2018 workshop page, which you can reach by clicking on the workshop title, above.
