Satellite study finds major shifts in global freshwater

In a recent "first-of-its-kind" study led by NASA, scientists found major changes to freshwater availability — changes that could impact water shortages over the course of the century. For the study, published this week in Nature, scientists drew on 14 years of satellite observations combined with data on human activity to track freshwater trends in 34 regions worldwide. And, according to hydrologist Jay Famiglietti, "What we are witnessing is major hydrologic change."[...]
