The Frost Monitoring and Forecasting application uses satellite datasets to provide a daily map of frost potential. The application provides morning updates to end users in the Kenya Ministry of Agriculture and Kenya Ministry of Water and Irrigation as email links, so they can see current and previous datasets.

The maps' color schemes make it readily apparent where potential problem areas exist. Ongoing development includes forecasting to provide warning 72 hours in advance of a frost event. Also in development is an automated system that creates online maps using the latest NASA data. The processes and tool can be modified and used in other geographic locations. Read More
