It’s Day 5 of our #RGISCEarthWeek micro-workshop series! Today we feature Dr. Tom Vaughan who will give us an overview of the Rio Grande in the Laredo region of South Texas. (5:04)

Dr. Vaughan co-founded RGISC in 1994 and helped establish the river monitoring program for the Laredo/Nuevo Laredo stretch with city and state agencies. The goal was to test river water upstream, at, and downstream of our binational community to better understand our impact to its water quality. RGISC has since conducted river sampling and monitoring each month for nearly 25 years.
