UAVSAR completes flight over Sacramento Delta Levee and San Andreas Fault

Tuesday, December 10, 2013

The L-band radar conducted 2 local flights for Sacramento Delta levee monitoring and San Andreas Fault monitoring as well as soil moisture measurements over Tonzi Ranch for comparison and cross-calibration with the AirMOSS data.  Production processing has recovered from the October government shutdown which prevented access to the Ames supercomputer.  For the month of November, we exceeded planned processing throughput targets by delivering 280 POLSAR products (vs 150 planned) and 491 browse RPI products (vs 140 planned).  The increase in throughput is the result of automating job submission and streamlining QA (Quality Assessment) process as well as utilizing the Ames supercomputer to perform RPI browses processing.
