Abstract: Rivers, Our Connected Waters
Rivers connect waters and lands, and they also connect people. My research focuses on understanding connections, and disconnections related to rivers, and how humans have modified natural patterns and processes in recent decades. I will discuss river connectivity, highlight our connections with rivers, and present an overview of my research and community-based initiatives aimed at raising awareness about connections and disconnections of our world’s rivers.
