New Zealand investing in fresh water research

According to Environment Minister Nick Smith and Science Minister Wayne Mapp, the New Zealand Government will invest USD 9.3 million over the next six years in fresh water research. “The money will be used in two research projects. One will pioneer techniques for understanding groundwater, such as satellite remote sensing and the use of seismic signals from earthquakes. In the other, researchers will develop a new framework to enable communities to work together to manage their water resources within agreed limits.”
