Net radiation is a key component of the energy balance, whose estimation accuracy has an impact on energy flux estimates from satellite data. In typical remote sensing evapotranspiration (ET) algorithms, the outgoing shortwave and longwave components of net radiation are obtained from remote sensing data, while the incoming shortwave (S) and longwave (L)(More)
Sources of regional particulate matter (PM), particularly agricultural operations, must be understood in order to manage the air quality in irrigated dry climates. Direct monitoring measurements alone are useful, but not sufficient, to estimate regional PM source concentrations. This paper combines modeling with ground (point) and airplane (spatial)(More)
The Rio Grande Basin Initiative is a joint Texas A&M University and New Mexico State University effort to improve water conservation through research and education of irrigation efficiency. The Rio Grande Basin Initiative could not have come at a better time. As a result of regional drought, water distribution and use from the river is a growing matter of(More)
