We are pleased to announce an upcoming project called Schools and Satellites (SaS) to better quantify and understand precipitation patterns in Ghana in West Africa.
Understanding precipitation patterns is critical for water management anywhere.
In West Africa, rain gauges (ground-based measurements) are few and far between.
Imagery from satellites (remote sensing measurements) can be used to estimate precipitation and present a potential solution; however, current precipitation estimates from satellites for the region are very inaccurate.
