Hello Researchers,

新年快乐! 谈到Planet的科学社区,我们今年有很多令人兴奋的事情。我们也很想看看你们都想出了什么新的研究应用。你可以在我们的2020-2021年科学应用手册中回顾去年的一些大型研究出版物。

这个月,我们将举办一个关于我们新的PSScene资产和如何访问我们的8波段SuperDove数据的培训课程。你将能够通过我们任何一个有PlanetScope访问权的科学项目访问这些数据集,包括教育与研究(E&R)和NASA商业小卫星数据采集项目。

请记住,世界上任何有学位授予权的机构都有资格申请我们的教育和研究项目 此外,任何由联邦民用机构(即NASA、USGS、NOAA、USDA等)资助的研究人员都有资格通过NASA CSDA申请数据访问。如果你已经注册了,那么一定要把这些项目的信息传播给你的任何可能有资格和感兴趣的同事。

此外,如果你有论文或会议报告要使用Planet数据,并希望我们在《科学更新》或我们的博客和社交媒体上进行宣传,请将其发送给我们 

好消息:微软行星云计算更新发布了Planet Science Update_update

下面是邮件附带的一些其他方面的内容,看看有没有你感兴趣的,如果有的话,可以通过文件中附带的链接来完成注册 







Understanding The Downstream Impacts Of On-Farm Reservoirs


On-farm reservoirs play a critical role in crop irrigation. They store water during the wet season for subsequent use for crop irrigation during the dry season. In the U.S. alone, there are an estimated 2.6 million such reservoirs. However, storing this water has poorly understood impacts on downstream hydrology and ecosystems. The amount of water stored also varies from year to year based on the precipitation rates of the wet seasons. ​​A new study led by Vinicius Perin​​​ of North Carolina State University, partially conducted while Perin was an intern in ​​Planet’s Professional Services team​​​, utilizes Planet data in combination with European Space Agency Sentinel-1 radar and Sentinel-2 optical data. It studies the variations in these reservoirs at sub-weekly timescales across the seasons. Many of these reservoirs are smaller than 50 ha in surface area, so high resolution imagery is required to accurately determine their extents. Analyzing over 700 separate reservoirs, Perin et al. created a method involving Kalman filters to monitor reservoir surface area change over time. “[T]he approach presented in this study [has] the potential to enhance water conservation plans by allowing better assessment and management” of on-farm reservoirs, the authors note in their paper. “[T]his information can be used for water irrigation management recommendations aiming to increase water use efficiency.”
