New Reference Resource: View “Satellite Derived Water Quality Information for Worldwide Lakes and Rivers” Using IIWQ World Water Quality Portal


The IIWQ World Water Quality Portal is now available online to “assist with global water quality assessment and capacity building for streams, lakes and rivers.”
