This NAUNews articles talks about how NAU adjuct research professor Pat Chavez has been awarded a grant recently to “Investigate the Use of Remote Sensing to Detect and Map Potential Ground Water Resources in Eastern Africa.” Chavez is working with NAU Geospatial scientist Scott Kelly on the project to see if remotely sensed satellite data can be used in conjunction with other data to generate models that would depict potential groundwater locations in East Africa (Kenya and Ethiopia).
