NASA-funded researchers are creating satellite-based tools and strategies to make monitoring and managing the new dam easier, according to NASA Earth Observatory. Its mission is to help countries and individuals across the watershed reduce environmental problems while increasing economic benefits.

One of the scientists inspecting the dam from distance is Hisham Eldardiry, a research associate at the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL). Eldardiry performed many studies on whether satellites may be used to monitor reservoir height and discharge rates from dams like GERD, with support from NASA’s Applied Sciences program.

NASA Earth Observatory also mentioned, its research looked at how water managers could control the rate at which the GERD reservoir was filled in order to reduce downstream effects on Egypt’s High Aswan Dam, according to NASA Earth Observatory. It also looked at whether the Blue Nile has enough water to support GERD’s 13 turbines at full power.
