studies is the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) Earth Observing System (EOS) Aqua launched in May 2002. Aqua carries on board a suite of six sensors, including Atmospheric Infrared Sounder (AIRS), Advanced Microwave Sounding Unit (AMSU), Advanced Microwave Scanning Radiometer for EOS (AMSR-E), Clouds and the Earth’s Radiant Energy System (CERES), Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS), and the Humidity Sounder for Brazil (HSB; failed February 2003), which provide

, Descroix et al. (2007) argued that specific combinations of vegetation and soil types influenced the partitioning between infiltration- and saturation-excess runoff. Catchments with forests, woody savannas, or grasslands on permeable soils were found to be dominated by saturation-excess runoff, whereas areas with less dense vegetation or pastures on lower conductivity soils exhibited higher infiltration-excess runoff. These field observations indicate that a rich set of runoff mechanisms are possible
