Modern humans have become major data junkies. From computers to smart phones to the add-ons we continually develop and download, we intentionally buy into big data and its analysis in attempts to better understand the world we live in.
One important area that big data is not fully invested in, however, is the environment. The integration of this kind of monitoring and analysis would allow us to better understand the health of the location, region, and world around us. Because a direct correlation has been found between the environment and our physical health, there is no doubt that this information could lead to staggering improvements to our general well-being.

Droughts Reinforce California's Need for Water Management Improvements
California, also known as the Golden State, has many well-known qualities that attribute to its reputation. Along with having the ninth largest economy in the world and containing the highest and lowest points in the continental U.S., California has the most variable climate in the U.S.— a title that also comes with some consequences.
Possibly the most significant consequence is California's need to become resourceful with its water supply— not entirely surprising, given the drought it's been experiencing all summer. Droughts, which unfortunately occur on a fairly frequent basis, cause the state to rely heavily on groundwater. Estimates conclude that California may rely on this source for up to 65% of its water needs.
However, California is the only state that doesn't regulate groundwater, meaning that many of these groundwater sources are over-pumped, which can cause serious, permanent damages such as subsidence (the ground sinking), and destroyed aquifers. Continue reading...
