CEEDS Seminar: Using Data Science to Advance Quantification of Soil Moisture, 3 June 2020, 2:00-3:30pm

CEEDS Seminar: Using Data Science to Advance Quantification of Soil Moisture, 3 June 2020, 2:00-3:30pm

Following the successful format in our first seminar, we are pleased to announce that Eleanor Blyth will lead the second seminar on “using data science to advance quantification of soil moisture”. This seminar will focus on the grand challenge of quantifying soil moisture at the national scale. Both observations at large (satellite) and small (site-based COSMOS UK) scales combined with large-scale models (1km grid across mainland Britain) will be discussed to better understand this challenge.‚Äč

Speakers:

  • Jian Peng (University of Oxford): High-resolution soil moisture estimation and evaluation from Earth observation in the UK mainland.

  • Elizabeth Cooper (UKCEH): Using data assimilation to optimise pedotransfer functions using large-scale soil moisture observations.

  • Jessica Davis (Lancaster University): Making sense of soil - detecting soil change with multivariate sensing and mechanistically informed machine learning.

  • David Robinson (UKCEH): Soil moisture, capturing alternative states.

The seminar will be held via zoom; please use the following link:
