Finding your watershed

Follow the discussion about organizing via watersheds!

Determining in which watershed you find yourself…

Proposed structure for Watershed Wisdom Council Concept:

  • One Ocean; (The Oceanic Parliament is the representative organizing body)
  • There are 5 “named” ocean regions: Atlantic, Pacific, Indian, Arctic, and Southern;
  • These would logically be categorized into east & west sides longitudinally (possibly excluding the Arctic and Antarctica);
  • Then the divisions are distinguished further following the predominant currents and climate zones as generated along the latitudes north and south of the equator;
  • the central tropical band north and south between the equator and the Tropic of Cancer and Capricorn.
  • Any seas and gulfs
  • Reefs and other vital oceanic regions
  • The distributary Deltas
  • Main Affluent Tributaries
  • Confluent Branches and Streams
  • Influent Creeks and Springs
