Half a billion people worldwide live on river deltas, areas that are constantly changing and are at high risk of land loss and flooding. Dr. Steve Kuehl, faculty member at VIMS, has spent his career studying river deltas and the effects that nature and humans have on these environments. His current research focuses on the Ayeyarwady Delta in Myanmar, one of the least studied river deltas on earth. Join us as Dr. Kuehl tells the story of his research journey to Myanmar, the complexities of international research, and how his findings in Myanmar will help us understand and predict how future environmental and human-induced changes will impact deltas, and the people that inhabit them, around the world.
