Soil Moisture Active Passive (SMAP) : Notes from the Field : Blogs

Soil Moisture Active Passive (SMAP) : Notes from the Field : Blogs. This would be a good start to introduction to satellites. Also the SMAP helps with weather forecasting, and its data could possibly be used in meteorology unit. I’m doing that section next. How the SMAP would be a great example for electromagnetic spectrum and how the satellite uses radiation on the EM to gather its information. Especially interesting is NASA started the “Early Adopters” program. This allows more collaboration between various interested companies. Overall this new satellite could be a great opportunity for a education.
