For the first time ever, measurements from NASA Earth-observing research satellites are being used to help combat a potential outbreak of life-threatening cholera. Humanitarian teams in Yemen are targeting areas identified by a NASA-supported project that precisely forecasts high-risk regions based on environmental conditions observed from space.

Instruments on NASA's Terra and Aqua satellites were watching as Hurricane Lane -- a category 2 storm as of Friday, Aug. 24 -- made its way toward Hawaii.

Dr. Yasushi Yamaguchi

YasushiJapan ASTER Science Team Leader

Japan Space Systems, Japan

Profile from Nagoya University

The Science Team Leader for ASTER, Dr. Yasushi Yamaguchi, served as the Dean of the Graduate School of Environmental Studies at Nagoya University, where he continues to be a professor in Environmental Studies.   His research is focused on remote sensing using data from ASTER to estimate evapotranspiration levels in vegetated regions, heat balance analysis in urban centers, and geological mapping. In addition he uses data from a lunar radar sounder on-board the Kaguya lunar probe, to analyze the subsurface structure of the moon as well as clarifying the thermal history of the moon.

Yamaguchi formerly served as president of the Remote Sensing Society of Japan from 2012 – 2014
