Building the future through creativity, collaboration, and research success
Jay Famiglietti is trying to find fresh water by satellite. Famiglietti was recently recruited from NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory and newly minted as University of Saskatchewan's Canada 150 Research Chair in Hydrology and Remote Sensing.
Using satellite measurements, Famiglietti and his research tean will develop next-generation computer models and other new ways to track how freshwater availability is changing around the world.
Famiglietti joins the U of S, the Number 1 place in Canada to conduct Water Resources Research, as both Canada 150 Chair (a seven-year, $7-million program) and new executive director of the U of S Global Institute for Water Security.
