Sahara's edge studied from ground, air and space to improve water management

imilar campaigns, the results from AquiferEx ?which are superior in geometric resolution and the number of channels or polarisations to the capability of presently orbiting satellites - will also be used to anticipate the performance and usefulness of future satellite sensors.

Aquifer and TIGER

The Aquifer Project has in addition to SASS a second working area, the Iullemeden aquifer located south of the Sahara and stretching over the territories of Mali, Niger and Nigeria. Aquifer project federates as users the national water Ministries of those three countries, as well as those of Algeria, Libya and Tunisia. The international Sahara and Sahel Observatory (OSS) is the user group co-ordinator for the Aquifer project.

Aquifer takes place as part of the TIGER Initiative, aimed at applying Earth Observation to supply water-related geo-information in support of integrated water resource management for sustainable development. Since its initiation two years ago more than 200 African organisations ?including water and basin authorities, technical centres, universities and regional organisations - have become involved in different projects around the continent. The hope is to develop a technical, human and institutional capacity to bridge Africa's water information gap using satellite data.

ESA launched TIGER in 2002, as a response to that year's World Summit on Sustainable Development (WSSD) in Johannesburg, which stressed the potential of space-based systems to help achieve sustainable economic, social and environmental development.
