NASA : NASA Announces Briefing on New Mission to Track Water in Earth’s Soil .- NASA anuncia Reunión informativa sobre la nueva misión en la pista de agua en el suelo de la Tierra

Hola amigos: A VUELO DE UN QUINDE EL BLOG., la Agencia Espacial NASA, nos informa sobre una reunión informativa, sobre la nueva misión de : NASA's Soil Moisture Active Passive (SMAP) spacecraft. NASA, nos dice : " SMAP, fijada para el 29 de enero un lanzamiento desde la Base Aérea Vandenberg en California, proporcionará a los de más alta resolución de las mediciones más precisas y globales de la humedad del suelo jamás obtenida desde el espacio y detectará si el suelo está congelado o descongelado. Los datos serán utilizados para mejorar la comprensión científica de los procesos que vinculan agua, energía y carbono ciclos de la Tierra....."

NASA will hold a media briefing at 2 p.m. EST Thursday, Jan. 8, in the James E. Webb Auditorium at NASA Headquarters in Washington to discuss the upcoming Soil Moisture Active Passive (SMAP) mission.
The briefings will be broadcast live on NASA Television and streamed on the agency's website.
SMAP, set for a Jan. 29 launch from Vandenberg Air Force Base in California, will provide the most accurate, highest-resolution global measurements of soil moisture ever obtained from space and will detect whether the ground is frozen or thawed. The data will be used to enhance scientists' understanding of the processes that link Earth's water, energy and carbon cycles.
The briefing participants are:
  • Christine Bonniksen, SMAP program executive with the Science Mission Directorate’s Earth Science Division at NASA Headquarters in Washington
  • Kent Kellogg, SMAP project manager with NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) in Pasadena, California
  • Dara Entekhabi, SMAP science team lead, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Cambridge, Massachusetts
  • Brad Doorn, SMAP applications lead, Science Mission Directorate’s Applied Sciences Program at NASA Headquarters
Media may ask questions from participating agency centers or by telephone. To participate by phone, reporters must send an email providing their name, affiliation and telephone number to Dwayne Brown at dwayne.c.brown@nasa.gov by noon Thursday.
Media and the public also may ask questions during the briefing on Twitter using the hashtag #askNASA.
SMAP is the last of five NASA Earth science missions scheduled for launch within a 12-month period. NASA monitors Earth's vital signs from land, air and space with a fleet of satellites and ambitious airborne and ground-based observation campaigns. NASA develops new ways to observe and study Earth's interconnected natural systems with long-term data records and computer analysis tools to better see how our planet is changing.
