Associate Professor Colin Gleason of the Civil and Environmental Engineering Department leads a multi-disciplinary team of researchers who have received a $2.1-million grant from NASA to create a cloud-based software system providing unprecedented public access to satellite data on the water quantity and quality of the Earth’s rivers. There is currently no database available to provide near-real-time information on river depth, discharge, and sediment load, let alone one that is publicly available.
