The Contribution of the Earth Viability Center (EVC) to the Mapping of Marine Debris

The EVC is telling the story of Earth's viability. To tell this story, the EVC is creating a book of river stories with the people who live at the rivers. Rivers are a main pathway for many different substances and items from the terrestrial environment into the ocean, and many rivers increase the marine debris in the ocean. This chat is about the contribution the EVC could make in mapping potential marine debris in river systems.
