Understanding the Nation’s Water Resource Challenges: Results from NASEM’s Future Water Priorities Report

Tune in to January’s edition of The Current and hear from Ken Bradbury, Wisconsin State Geologist and Director of the Wisconsin Geological and Natural History Survey, as he discusses the newly released National Academies of Science, Engineering and Medicine (NASEM) report on future water resource priorities. Bradbury served on the consensus committee, and their report, titled, “Future Water Priorities for the Nation”, provides guidance to the USGS Water Mission Area on the most critical water resources challenges facing society in the next 25 years. The report features a list of critical water-resource issues or needs facing society and overviews the opportunities and challenges posed by new technologies related to environmental sensors, remoted sensing, and storage and manipulation of massive real-time data sets.
