Learn about the River Basin Center

The River Basin Center connects freshwater science to management and policy. Although affiliated with the Odum School of Ecology, it is known for an interdisciplinary approach; its members are drawn from units across the University of Georgia.

River Basin Center faculty, staff and students work on aquatic management issues around the globe, but the center maintains an emphasis on the southeastern US.
