Applied Sciences - Water Resources (ROSES 2016)

Funding Agency:
National Aeronautics and Space Administration

Within the NASA Earth Science Division, the Applied Sciences Program solicits proposals that develop and demonstrate the integration of NASA Earth science data and models into water resource management applications and decision support tools that can be sustained by operational partners or stakeholders. Remote sensing data, in combination with hydrologic models, can provide important information that can be used to assist water resource managers working with a wide range of partners and stakeholders. In order to make the best decisions possible and develop strategies that enhance the security and sustainability of water supplies, water resource managers and their stakeholders need timely information on water quality and imbalances between water supply and demand.

The specific goal of this solicitation is to advance the use of satellite observations to detect and mitigate threats to water security and sustainability with an emphasis on monitoring and management of 1) water quality and 2) agricultural water use.
