dc.description.abstract Monitoring and measurement from earth observing satellites have been a means for understanding the natural resources of our planet for over 40 years. However, in the last 10 years, with the development of innovative signal processing techniques, the ability to measure changes in moisture content and structure to the survey quality required by land managers opened a new frontier for the monitoring and assessment of agricultural lands from space. NASA’s upcoming NISAR mission will be unique in providing comprehensive and frequent imaging of nearly all lands globally twice every twelve days with open access to the data. This is potentially a game-changer for planning and management of agriculture globally, particularly in areas with dense cloud cover or at high latitudes. The NISAR Agriculture and Soil Moisture Applications Workshop was held on June 26-28, 2018 at the USDA National Agricultural Library in Beltsville, Maryland with representative members from the broader agricultural community including non-profits, private, and government agencies to determine how to best leverage the NISAR mission for monitoring agricultural lands globally. en_US
