The Cape Cod Rivers Observatory, an initiative of the Woodwell Climate Research Center, along with several partners, focuses world-class river science on these hidden treasures of Cape Cod. We contribute essential water quality data that underpin efforts to protect and restore these marvelous and under appreciated ecosystems and the estuaries into which they flow.
