Scientists using satellite data say they've determined northern India's groundwater has been declining by as much as 1 foot per year during the past decade. The researchers, led by Matt Rodell of NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center, blame the water loss nearly entirely on human activity. Hydrologists said they determined more than 26 cubic miles of groundwater disappeared from aquifers in areas of Haryana, Punjab, Rajasthan and India's capitol territory of Delhi between 2002 and 2008.
