Water stress tool set to 'go live'
from Sensors & Systems
An experimental tool to give farmers, government officials, environmental groups and other stakeholders an improved estimate of how much water is available in a specific watershed is scheduled to go on line this summer. The Watershed Hydrologic Stress Tool uses data from NOAA and NASA weather reports, crop and hydrology models, and water consumers to produce an accurate, near real-time snapshot of water use and the potential for drought stress in a given watershed.
