2019-2020 Water Group Chair:
Lindi Quackenbush (New YorkView)
The Water Group aims to engage experts from federal agencies, water quality-focused organizations, and the AmericaView consortium in order to evaluate existing water quality issues occurring nationally that may be addressed through sharing of remotely sensed data, remote sensing derived products, maps, algorithms and applications, and case studies (referred to as “elements” below). The group aims to create a website that will serve as a centralized remote sensing water resource gateway and engage water quality and natural resource managers, NGOs, federal and state agencies, foundations, the public, and researchers with the goal of addressing and solving nationally-occurring WQQU issues through sharing of elements, highly-engaged partnerships, contacts, outreach, education, and knowledge transfer. The website builds on the strengths of the nationwide AmericaView consortium.
