Antonio Donato Nobre: The magic of the Amazon: A river that flows invisibly all around us

By: TED
Via YouTube | September 19, 2014

The Amazon River is like a heart, pumping water from the seas through it, and up into the atmosphere through 600 billion trees, which act like lungs. Clouds form, rain falls and the forest thrives. In a lyrical talk, Antonio Donato Nobre talks us through the interconnected systems of this region, and how they provide environmental services to the entire world. A parable for the extraordinary symphony that is nature.

If you have ever wanted to look at a map of Europe and see all of its rivers and streams outlined, well now you can. An Australian Ph.D. student from the University of New South Wales named Robbi Bishop-Taylor is the one who has redrawn Europe by mapping out its waterways.

Bishop-Taylor was able to do this using open source geographic informational software called QGIS to research the 1.35 million streams throughout Europe. The result is a map of European with various blue colors and lines to dictate the different waterways. The thickness of the lines represents the number of each river’s tributaries.
