Project » Global Rivers
In the same way a doctor can monitor a patient's health by analyzing their blood chemistry, scientists can assess the "health" of a river watershed by studying the chemical composition and other properties of the water. Scientists from the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, Woods Hole Research Center, and their international colleagues founded the Global Rivers Group to monitor the health of major rivers worldwide, from the Arctic to the tropics.
To date, I have documented expeditions to the Congo and Fraser Rivers. I will be producing a series of multimedia videos focusing on the science challenges, natural environment, and local perspective for each river.
