CSC Scientific has been a resource for solving moisture determination problems for more than five decades. In addition to answering direct inquires, the company regularly publishes information about many aspects of the subject moisture testing including Moisture Content and Water Activity. Fairfax, VA (PRWEB) June 03, 2013 Moisture content in a product is a simple concept. However, moisture, i.e. water is pervasive. It gets into the very structure of a material. Consequently, it is often...

April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online An ongoing project using NASA and Indian satellite data has identified two factors that are creating a potentially volatile Southern California wildfire season. Scientists from NASA´s Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) and Chapman University have tracked the relationship between rainfall and the growth and drying-out of vegetation in recent months, during what has been an abnormally dry year. The data shows that the...

Wildfires Can Burn Hot Without Ruining Soil

American Geophysical Union When scientists torched an entire 22-acre watershed in Portugal in a recent experiment, their research yielded a counterintuitive result: Large, hot fires do not necessarily beget hot, scorched soil. It´s well known that wildfires can leave surface soil burned and barren, which increases the risk of erosion and hinders a landscape´s ability to recover. But the scientists´ fiery test found that the hotter the fire–and the denser the...

In December 2012,...

Over 30 Years Of Global Soil Moisture Observations For Climate Applications
2012-06-20 04:14:52

[ Watch the Video ] Water held in soil plays an important role in the climate system. The dataset released by ESA is the first remote-sensing soil moisture data record spanning the period 1978 to 2010 — a predecessor of the data now being provided by ESA´s SMOS mission. The datasets are now available to the science community for feedback analyses and climate model validation. The amount of water held in global soils makes up only about 0.001% of the total water found on...

SMOS Images Europe’s Dry Soils From Space

The trend of below-average rainfall across Europe has continued into the first months of 2012. ESA´s SMOS water mission has revealed the negative consequences of this recent bout of ℠good´ weather. Western Europe is experiencing a severe lack of water because of this trend. Concern about the deficit of water is rising across European countries and their respective water agencies, in particular in Spain, France, Germany and the UK. The absence of sufficient water...
