My name is Elizabeth Borneman and I am a writer, blogger, and avid world traveler! I enjoy reading any book I can get my hands on, finishing marathons, and drinking coffee in the sunshine. I'm currently learning Arabic and eating my way through any delicious foods I can find. Elizabeth is also a contributing writer for GeographyRealm.com.
Called the ENACTS (Enhancing National Climate Services) initiative, scientists are using satellite data in order to estimate rainfall, temperature, and other information to fill in a 15 year gap in climate data collection for Rwanda.
Satellites including Europe’s Sentinel-1A can now track the rise and fall of different agricultural products around the world. The satellite’s imagery showed that rice production in the Mekong Delta has decreased in the past year.
