Using Satellite Observations for Land Ecosystems and Water Resources

"Under a three-year agreement signed on Feb. 22, NASA will support two Conservation International-led initiatives, one focused on land ecosystems in Africa, the other on water resources along the Mekong River in Southeast Asia. NASA researchers will analyze and model remote-sensing data from the agency’s fleet of Earth-observing missions and commercial satellites, mapping ecosystems at regional and national scales. Satellite data, with its coverage of broad swaths of terrain, are critical for understanding the impacts of human activity on the environment."

NASA and Conservation International are partnering to map and value ecosystems in Tanzania as well as other African countries that are members of the Gaborone Declaration for Sustainability in Africa.
