Launching Satellite Based Groundwater Monitoring



To monitor the variations in groundwater storage, Pakistan Council of Research in Water Resources (PCRWR) has established a satellite based groundwater monitoring system with collaboration of University of Washington (UW), USA under NASA-SERVIR and NASA Water program. This program of organizational capacity building of PCRWR was started in early 2015.

As a result of this collaborative capacity building program, PCRWR has acquired training at the University of Washington (USA) on processing of data from a satellite mission called Gravity Recovery and Climate Experiment (GRACE). Now, PCRWR has become one of the premier leading organizations to independently process GRACE data and derive maximum benefit from NASA’s free available satellite datasets for the monitoring of basin scale water storage in the region.
