Satellite to Help Researchers Predict Risk of Flooding Months in Advance

According to a new study, it may be possible to receive signals of disastrous floods up to 11 months with the help of satellite monitoring of tiny changes in the gravitational field of river basins. A map of the Mississippi River basin has been developed by researchers after combining the knowledge about land use and data from a NASA gravity-monitoring satellite called GRACE. They found that minute increases in the gravitational pull pointed to higher wetness of the land.
