Description

Aquifers contain deep water resources, which makes it difficult to directly observe their dynamics, evolution and exploitation. their dynamics, evolution and exploitation. Although much progress has been made in direct data collection and two-dimensional models, there are difficulties in estimating recharge and water abstraction processes. recharge estimation and water abstraction processes due to the extensive and delocalised nature of the extensive and delocalised nature of their exploitation. But irrigation water alters the radiation of the crop, which in turn is related to photosynthetic activity. In turn, this is a function of the crop’s evapotranspiration and its level of nutrition.

All of these qualities can be identified and assessed by means of sensors carried by manned aircraft, drones or satellites. Access to aerospace imagery and software that facilitates their management are widely available now. software that facilitates their management, there is a window of opportunity for the joint management of groundwater and irrigation.

On this day, we present a short video by WWF designed to promote the dissemination of remote sensing applications among groundwater managers. groundwater managers. In addition, public and social entities will illustrate with experiences and case studies of digitisation and the methodology developed.
