Degradation of a Tropical Stream [resource group]

A series of photographs showing the widening of a road that then caused an increase in the sediment load in the streams below the road. The photographs show the road and the surrounding tropical rainforest, an example of a stream with increased sediment load, and before and after photographs of pools along the stream (with and without reference points). As of 2012, the system still had an increased sediment load.
