Can you measure groundwater from space?

The College of Biological Sciences and the Freshwater Society present "Dwindling Groundwater Reserves as Viewed from Space."

 

From Minnesota to California to a growing number of areas around the world, many of our aquifers are being rapidly depleted, likely never to be replenished. Dr. Jay Famiglietti, professor of Earth System Science and of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the University of California, Irvine, and the Senior Water Scientist at the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory at the California Institute of Technology, leads a research team exploring declines in Earth's stores of groundwater measured over the last decade by NASA satellites. The lecture is part of the Moos Family Speaker Series on Water Resources.
