#TrackingWorldWater: The Science Behind the SWOT Satellite (News Briefing) 2022-12-13 15:18

The Surface Water and Ocean Topography (SWOT) mission, led by NASA and the French space agency Centre National d’Études Spatiales (CNES), is days away from launch. Once in orbit, it will survey nearly all water on Earth’s surface for the first time and help address some of our time’s most pressing climate change questions. Why is SWOT important, and how will it affect people’s lives around the globe? In this science briefing, experts on the mission will provide insight into how the instruments aboard SWOT will gather essential data on water, one of our planet’s most vital resources. Participants: Katherine Calvin, chief scientist and senior climate advisor, NASA Nadya Vinogradova Shiffer, SWOT program scientist, NASA Tamlin Pavelsky, SWOT hydrology science lead, University of North Carolina Benjamin Hamlington, research scientist, Sea Level and Ice Group, NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory Selma Cherchali, Earth observation program head, CNES For more information on the SWOT mission, visit https://swot.jpl.nasa.gov/ or follow #TrackingWorldWater on social media. SWOT is a collaboration between NASA and CNES, with contributions from the Canadian Space Agency and the UK Space Agency.
