Students will learn about Earth’s freshwater resources and how NASA’s Earth observing satellites are helping us better understand Earth’s water. They will work in small “expert groups” to explore growing wheat, the differences in weather and climate in two wheat farming regions of the world, Pakistan and Kansas, and the scarcity of freshwater resources in Pakistan. Using this information, students will get into “teams” and work with NASA data from the GPM (Global Precipitation Measurement) mission to explore the amount of precipitation that has fallen in these two regions over the past two decades. They will make recommendations for how farmers in Pakistan could reduce their water usage based on the work that is being done by Faisal Hossain. Finally, they will consider ways they can reduce their use of freshwater resources in their own lives.
