[ESIP-all] Earth Observation Information for the Shennandoah River

    An interesting opportunity has presented itself.  The Earth Science Foundation's office is located on the Shenandoah River, which was recently cited as one of the most endangered rivers in America.  As a Clarke County, Virginia citizen, I asked my County Supervisor what he was doing to resolve the problem.  It turns out that he is the chair of a 15 county commission aimed at developing a comprehensive plan for saving the Shenandoah.  I committed to working with him to determine whether there were Earth observation assets that could help the group do their work.  Seems to me that we have a situation in which the ESIP Federation could work directly with a group of key decision-makers to resolve a high-profile problem.  Do you have EO data/information/research that would be useful in developing a plan for the Shenandoah River basin?  Do you have data/information/research relating to other river systems that might be useful to developing a water quality improvement program for the Shenandoah?

                                                                            Best regards, Dick Wertz
