Getirana study appears in GEWEX News

ESSIC Assistant Research Scientist Augusto Getirana’s study of water availability forecasting in the Tigris-Euphrates River Basin appears in the November edition of GEWEX News, the quarterly newsletter of the World Climate Research Programme’s Global Energy and Water Cycle Experiment.

Getirana, ESSIC Research Associate Amy McNally and other co-authors are studying African and Middle Eastern catchments that see heavy human use but are “data sparse.” Their work is part of the Forecasting for Africa and the Middle East (FAME) Project, a NASA initiative to improve forecasting for such catchments through remote sensing.
