Title

  • Watching Water: New Approaches to Assessing & Managing Global Water Security & Sustainability

Summary

  • John Bolten reviewed the technological advances in satellite-based remote sensing and numerical modeling of reservoir volume, vegetation health, groundwater movement, soil moisture and other factors that drive these new approaches and discuss how the data are being applied to address these global issues. The combined stresses of overpopulation, water pollution and poor water management practices require new approaches to better assess and manage global water security and sustainability.
