Hydrological Sciences Research
Hydrological Sciences is a part of Hydrospheric and Biospheric Sciences located at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland. Water is critical to sustaining life on Earth. Hydrological Sciences of the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center recognizes the primary role of water in the Earth system and seeks to advance hydrological science and applications from local to global scales.
Key missions supported include The Soil Moisture Active and Passive (SMAP) Mission, The Global Precipitation Measurement (GPM) Mission, The Gravity Recovery and Climate Experiment (GRACE), The Ice, Cloud, and land Elevation Satellite-2 (ICESat-2), and The Surface Water Ocean Topography (SWOT) mission, in addition to instrument science and algorithm team roles in the Joint Polar Satellite System (JPSS) and the Defense Weather Satellite System (DWSS).
