Review and use of earth observations and remote sensing in water resource management in South Africa
Expanded Title:South Africa is facing increasing water stress, while water quality and availability issues are becoming more acute. The WRC’s meaningful contribution to the development of the capacity of the water sector and the broadening of the country’s water centred R&D base has resulted in the country being much better prepared to deal with water management challenges. The use of modern technologies, such as Earth observation and remote sensing, further contribute to the efficient and integrated management of this limited resource. However, the need to ensure that full use is made of these technologies requires investigation so that gaps can be identified and research agendas adapted.
