Practical Applications of Space Systems, Supporting Paper 5: Inland Water Resources.
National Academy of Sciences - National Research Council, Washington, DC. Assembly of Engineering.
This report summarizes the findings of one of fourteen panels that studied progress in space science applications and defined user needs potentially capable of being met by space-system applications. The study was requested by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) and was conducted by the Space Applications Board. The panels comprised user specialists drawn from federal, state, and local governments and from business and industry. In this report, the Panel on Inland Water Resources discusses how and to what extent space technology can be used to improve the management of the nation's inland water resources. This management is discussed in four areas: inventory, basic research on hydrologic balance, planning, and operation. (MH)
