NASA's Water Portal Launched

By Amber Jenkins

The NASA Water Portal map interface, which allows users to browse Water Data Needs and Water Capabilities across the western U.S.

NASA's Water Portal is now live and available to the public, scientists and water managers and decision makers. The portal is a water information hub produced by NASA's Western Water Applications Office.

It provides interactive catalogs of Water Data Needs and NASA Water-Related Capabilities, as part of our mission to improve how water is managed in the arid western U.S. by getting NASA data, technology, and tools into the hands of water managers and decision makers. The portal serves as a hub for building connections between these catalogs and our partners, including water managers, decision makers, and scientists.

Water data can be searched by water topic and geographical region (river basin or U.S. state), and viewed in map, thumbnail or list view.

We welcome submissions! Share your Water Data Need or Water Capability and we will be in touch.
