There is a significant interest in the Earth Science research and user remote sensing community to substantially increase the number of useful observations relative to the current frequency of collection. The obvious reason for such a push is to improve the temporal, spectral, and spatial coverage of the area(s) under investigation. However, there is little(More)
Under a recently-funded NASA Earth Science Technology Office (ESTO) award we are now designing, and will eventually implement, a sensor web architecture that couples future Earth observing systems with atmospheric, chemical, and oceanographic models and data assimilation systems. The end product will be a "sensor web simulator" (SWS), based upon the(More)
Sensor Web observing systems may have the potential to significantly improve our ability to monitor, understand, and predict the evolution of rapidly evolving, transient, or variable environmental features and events. This improvement will come about by integrating novel data collection techniques, new improved instruments, emerging communications(More)
A strategic goal of NASA’s Science Mission Directorate is the development of highly advanced global Earth observing systems to help monitor and predict key elements of the Earth’s ocean-atmosphere system. A new concept now being considered is the “sensor web”, which would allow collaborative measurements to be made by linking together various spaced-based(More)
