Conference Paper
Full-text available
Water is a valuable resource and an understanding of soil moisture dynamics is critical in many land management, agricultural and engineering applications. Satellite and UAV remote sensing platforms present an opportunity for rapid, cost-efficient data collection; however, soil moisture remote sensing presents unique challenges. Specifically, spect...

The Hunder Dunes occur in the Shyok valley, Ladakh region, north-western India. These barchanoid and transverse dunes consist of sand reworked from the seasonally exposed beds of the river. Wind direction is strongly uni-modal from the northwest and is controlled by valley orientation. We observed small (10–20 m long, 5–10 m wide, and up to 1.5 m h...

This paper highlights unique sites in Ladakh, India, investigated during our 2016 multidisciplinary pathfinding expedition to the region. We summarize our scientific findings and the site's potential to support science exploration, testing of new technologies and science protocols within the framework of astrobiology research. Ladakh has several ac...

This conference paper (p53-56) is about swales (inverted yardangs) discovered between sand dunes of the Hunder dunefield, in Ladakh, in the Northern Himalayas. Proceedings of the 5th Australian Regolith Geoscientists Association Conference, from Wallaroo, South Australia, are also included. The proceedings cover topics including: regolith geoc...

Sand dunes appearing in remotely-sensed imagery may be used measure and characterise valley wind regimes where meteorological observations are not available. In this study, a method for determining the direction and seasonality of valley winds using Sentinel satellite imagery is explained. The method - which includes the digitisation of dune ridges...

Understanding the constraints of field work while in a space suit is critical when planning crewed exploration strategies for the surface of the Moon, Mars, and other accessible Solar System bodies. Mars Society Australia has undertaken a number of studies into the effect of simulated or prototype space suits on field work performance, in the Pilba...
