JT Reager, Earth scientist at JPL, which Caltech manages for NASA, and Indrani Graczyk, program manager of the NASA Western Water Applications Office (WWAO), located at JPL, discuss their research into water resource management and how JPL and NASA satellites help individuals and government entities make difficult decisions in the face of climate change.
Graczyk and Reager explain how satellites have made possible a golden age of water monitoring, how modern droughts compare to those from centuries ago, and how a complex maze of rules and rights governs the H2O that comes out of your tap. Here, they talk with Caltech science writer Whitney Clavin.
This event is part of Conversations on Sustainability, a webinar series hosted by the Caltech Science Exchange.
Join Caltech science writers as they interview scientists and engineers from across campus and at JPL about science-driven solutions to mitigate climate change, and ask your own questions: https://scienceexchange.caltech.edu/connect/conversations/conversations-sustainability?utm_source=youtube&utm_medium=web&utm_campaign=csesustainability
