Uncertainties: monochrome - Estimating streamflow from satellites

Detailed Description

Animation of five satellite images of the Tanana River in Alaska. The imagery is colored in shades of blue to show the degree of confidence that water is present. Two scatter plots show positive pairwise relationships between satellite river elevation and satellite river width and satellite streamflow. A timeseries chart shows that satellite streamflow captures the dynamics of observed streamflow at a gaged site.
