The compromise between spatial and temporal resolution remains a challenge in remote sensing. With recent advances in the use of CubeSat constellations, these spatiotemporal barriers are being overcome, with daily and 3 m resolution data now available. Here, we combine the new sensing capabilities of CubeSats with the well-established NASA PT-JPL model to estimate crop water use at unprecedented spatial and high temporal resolutions. We demonstrate this technology via an application in precision agriculture, where the characterization of spatial variability both between and within fields is required to quantify water needs and to establish effective irrigation scheduling. The advances being afforded by CubeSats have implications across disciplines and are fundamentally changing the way we observe the Earth. View this paper.
