Forecasting your Water Quality

EPA is developing a mobile app to deliver local water quality forecasts with the touch of a button

You check the weather before heading out the door, but how about the water quality? EPA scientist Blake Schaeffer is leading a team of scientists in Gulf Breeze who are collaborating with others around the country to develop a mobile app that will let you do just that. The Pathfinder project utilizes an experimental satellite combined with remote sensing technology that is currently being tested aboard the International Space Station. Schaeffer hopes the project will increase awareness of water quality and ecosystem health.
