Toward a Disaster Resilient California:
Can we look to the sky to address California’s water challenges? As California continues to grapple with frequent drought and overdrafted aquifers, satellite based measurements offer a cost-effective way to generate high resolution data on groundwater resources across a wide geographic area. Data from satellites, in conjunction with other ground-based monitoring, can help inform sustainable groundwater management.
How can we use remote sensing technologies to improve groundwater management and increase drought resilience? Watch our CCST Expert Briefing and download our one pager to learn more. Held December 8th, 2021.
