Reddit Community for River Science

Editor’s note: This post about River Science on Reddit was written by Mason Parrone’, Prototyper at Little River.

Here at Little River, we’re always looking for new and exciting ways to connect with our Emriver model users and the broader science community. Reddit provides a great platform for people to connect, talk about their models, as well as share tips, experiments, and ideas. After much searching, we couldn’t find a suitable subreddit that met our needs, so we created our own.

r/RiverScience — “All things related to river science. Erosion, geomorphology, sedimentology, stratigraphy. Scholarly articles, experiments, physical and computer modeling.”

This subreddit isn’t just about our models. It’s a place for people to come together and discuss everything river model adjacent as well.

Is there something relating to river science you want to share?

Do you have one of our models and want to share a neat experiment or demonstration?

Or maybe you have an idea for an experiment you’d like to see done. Ourselves or one of our model users may be able to dive in and document/share the outcome. 


Here are some related subreddits that deserve a notable mention:

r/conservation — “A community for sharing and discussing links about Conservation Biology. The scientific study of the nature and status of Earth’s biodiversity with the aim of protecting species, their habitats, and ecosystems from extinction.”

r/geology — “The scientific study of the origin, history, and structure of the Earth.”

r/geomorphology — “A place for geomorphologists, physical geographers, geologists geotechnical engineers and anyone else interested in the study of landforms.”

r/water — “Devoted to the science and politics of water: aquifers, dams, hydrology, boundary disputes, peak water, riparian rights, stormwater, groundwater, fish kills, fossil water, and news by the acre-foot.”


We hope you’ll join us on r/RiverScience and the rest of Reddit!
