How remote sensing can help address food security around the world.

When floods, droughts, and other natural disasters hit isolated and poor regions of the world, it can have devastating impacts on the local price of food. NASA Goddard research scientist Molly Brown is using satellite data to investigate and model the relationship between weather shocks and food prices in order to better address food security challenges around the world.
