Targeting drought with nuclear techniques

A global project to read the fingerprints of raindrops is harnessing the power of big data to monitor water supplies for our thirsty planet. Using isotope hydrology, scientists in Austria, Costa Rica, and around the world are analyzing rain and river water to see which raindrops end up in which rivers. This helps avoid drought, especially in the light of climate change.
