Water Quality Monitoring by Satellite
Journal of Chemical Education, v81 n2 p171 Feb 2004
The availability of abundant water resources in the Upper Midwest of the United States is nullified by their contamination through heavy commercial and industrial activities. Scientists have taken the responsibility of detecting the water quality of these resources through remote-sensing satellites to develop a wide-ranging water purification plan for the complete Great Lakes area.
