Watching the Fraser River Flow

At Hell's Gate in British Columbia, the Fraser River flows with roughly twice the water volume of the Niagara Falls. A team of scientists and students from WHOI and the University of the Fraser Valley recently returned from a three-week trip to study the source, movement, age, and composition of organic carbon transported by the Fraser to the Pacific. Rivers are a critical link between carbon removed from the atmosphere by land plants and its eventual sequestration in the global ocean. The work is part of the Woods Hole Global Rivers Project.
