    Title

    Assessing and Mitigating the Global Freshwater Crisis

    Description

    Water is life and with Earth’s changing climate, water availability, quality and security are under stress creating a global societal crisis. Despite its importance, the challenges of assessing and monitoring fresh water are poorly understood as is the ability to generate products to inform decision makers. The vantage point of space affords a unique opportunity to make the critical measurements related with fresh water. This session will focus on the past, present and future space flight missions devoted to making freshwater measurements. It will also include modelling systems for predicting availability and address products generated for societal benefits.
