River-as-Ecosociety examines how rivers entwine hydrology, ecology, climates and societal histories, cultures and institutions. Rivers are understood as socio-natures: constituted by the interplay of different actors and ecosystems. It expresses that river basins, wetlands, streams and hydrological cycles are mediated by ecology and human imagination, hydrological models, and technological intervention.
The main question within this dimension is:
How are river systems configured by local hydrology, ecology, climates and human interventions across space and time scales?
