Water Resource Exploration

I have worked with industry partners to explore water resource availability in water-scarce regions, such as this 2011 water balance study for Jordan.  A plethora of land surface conditions are being observed, which need to be interpreted and transitioned into decision support solutions. This has motivated the development of the Global Land Data Assimilation System (GLDAS), which has a massive global 1948-present, 0.25o degree global land surface data archive. This image shows  the GLDAS-derived water budget and its long-term changes for Jordan, with implications for water sector applications. Analysis of these data will help Jordan to better understand its changing water balance and to explore new activities that will minimize the gap between water supply and demand.
