2017 NASA Water Resources Team Supports Water Resources Management

Annual NASA Water Resources Team meeting provides a forum for water resources community to exchange information, share updates and collaborate.

Utilizing NASA Earth Observations to Assess Snow Cover in Saguaro National Park

Using NASA Earth observations and Google Earth Engine, NASA DEVELOP helps to provide National Park Service with a new tool to assess snow cover in Saguaro National Park.

Strategic Shade: Using NASA Earth Observations to Identify the Hottest Bus Stops in Phoenix

The NASA DEVELOP Phoenix Health & Air Quality project applies NASA Earth observations to help researchers and practitioners strategically deploy shade in Phoenix.

It’s Not Easy Being the Green: Quantifying Invasive Species Cover in the Green River Watershed

Riparian corridors are inhabited by unique and biodiverse plant communities that control erosion, manage sediment loads, and filter pollutants.

The Delta Smeltdown: Monitoring Turbidity to Aid Delta Smelt Conservation

Water quality is a critical element of freshwater supply, particularly in times and areas of drought.

Smooth Satellite: An Efficient Alternative to Monitoring the Chesapeake Bay’s Water Resources

Submerged Aquatic Vegetation (SAV) is vitally important to the Chesapeake Bay, serving as one of the primary food sources for the organisms that inhabit the bay.

Stormwater, Salinity, and Seagrass: Remote Sensing in Florida’s Biscayne Bay

Submerged Aquatic Vegetation (SAV) is an important component of coastal ecosystems, and is vulnerable to increased turbidity in the water column.

Agua in Aconcagua: Integrating NASA Earth Observations into Chile Water Management Practices

The Aconcagua basin of central Chile, just north of the capital city of Santiago, is an arid region dominated by the Andes Mountains and heavily dependent on glaciers and seasonal meltwater for its water reserves.

Stress and Duress in the Sahel: Building Resiliency in Niger

Global water resources are important for societies, economies, and the environment.

The Airborne Snow Observatory is Changing the Way Snow is Mapped

In the semi-arid southwest, measuring winter snowpack is critical for planning next summer’s water supplies. NASA’s ASO project helps to make projections of water availability more accurate than ever before.

Finding the Trees through the Cloud

As the water regime changes within Everglades National Park in response to mitigation efforts, identifying mangrove presence and tracking long-term changes is imperative to park management.
