Video about GRACE and tracking water from space. They analyze land-water depletion with increased rise in ocean levels.
Note the discussion by Famiglietti about the areas of drought: above and below ground water levels... Since the change in water is the primary difference that impacts (land)mass, the GRACE satellites can measure the changes. And it seems with a whole lot of precision.
There's more to come from the lecture series on water that's upcoming.
Water, water everywhere, but not a drop to drink. One argument is, that the the next wars will be over water? ...
