Satellites help find water in Nigeria
Scientists say satellite imagery from the European Space Agency is helping find water in Nigeria's arid Sahel region.
The Water Resources Assessment program identifies underground water sources that could be tapped to help local farmers collect, store and improve water capacity for livestock and crops, the agency said in a release Monday.
We are very happy with the project's scope and outcome, as we believe this source of information will be fundamental for water management activities, Alfari said.
