09.18.20 - NASA Hydrological Forecast System Supports Food and Water Security in Africa and Middle East
The new NASA Hydrological Forecast and Analysis System (NHyFAS) joins the U.S. Agency for International Development's Famine Early Warning System Network to help Africa and the Middle East better prepare for droughts and related disasters. NHyFAS runs monthly at the NASA Center for Climate Simulation (NCCS).
