Scientists have become increasingly more aware of the toll that the industrial use of rivers has on wildlife and human cultures. With the advent of geographic information systems, there has been a new and detailed understanding of how both introduced pollutants and natural attributes in the environment change the life cycles of plants and animals. This project, completed at the Southeast Asia Systems for Analysis, Research, and Training Regional Center, in Bangkok, Thailand, created a more focused and accessible model of the Chao Phraya River Basin. The two goals of this project are to create a model which will show correlations between human use of the river and its pollutant concentrations, and to make our model more available to the scientific community.
