Abstract

Tracking the existence and degree of anthropogenic chemical contamination of water systems is a daunting task. The spatial extent of many jurisdictions is daunting to measure, let alone arranging for time-tracking data sets. Taking a cue from ornithological surveys, perhaps a network of academia/government experts and ("amateur") citizen-scientists could create a data set that would at least provide a better handle on where to focus resources and attention. Kolok and Schoenfuss discuss the merits and possible organization of such an approach.
