The Middle East lost a Dead Sea-Size amount of water in 7 years.

This week my research team and I published a new study on recent (2003-2009) water losses in Turkey, Syria, Iraq and Iran. We used data from a NASA satellite mission called GRACE (short for Gravity Recovery and Climate Experiment) that essentially weighs regional water storage changes from space. The picture is not a pretty one.
