Turning Research to Knowledge: How Satellites Can Help Us Manage Our Water Resources

Do you ever wonder how students use the White Clay for research? Recently, I sat down with fellow student Kelsey Moxey, a University of Delaware (UD) Master’s candidate in the interdisciplinary water science and policy program, to discuss her work in the White Clay. Kelsey studies nutrient dynamics in watersheds using geospatial analysis. Put simply, she examines how nutrients are distributed across the land surface, focusing specifically on mushroom farms within the Christina River Basin. Kelsey explains why her work is important, and how it will have a positive impact on the White Clay.

Raising Awareness Via New Educational Signage

It's a unique challenge to educate the public when it comes to plant based solutions to stormwater management. Most of these features exist naturally throughout our watershed, but often, go unnoticed or under appreciated. In a watershed where the majority of land is under private ownership, not understanding the land-water connection is problematic. It's important for residents to be able to identify these best management practices, whether natural or man made, in order to understand their importance to clean water.
