The Program manages three specific activities to improve skills and capabilities in the US and developing countries on how to access and apply NASA Earth science – DEVELOP, SERVIR, and Applied Remote SEnsing Training (ARSET). In addition, the Program is actively involved in the international Group on Earth Observation (GEO), and the GEO activities support the overall capacity-building efforts.

Collecting physical data is laborious, time consuming, and costly, and it can be applied at only a limited scale. Also, that data is subject to a number of uncertainties. In contrast, GRACE-based data is readily available, free, can be applied at a large scale such as the Indus basin, and is reliable. Moreover, there are no data sharing issues as compared to traditional datasets.
