OSU Professor Writes Deep Thoughts On Shallow Waters

National Park Service

It's fun to sit on the river bank and watch the water go by. 

Sean Fleming has done that, we suspect, but he's also thought a lot more deeply about rivers and what they represent, both in reality and in metaphor. 

Fleming is a geophysicist at Oregon State University and the author of Where The River Flows: Scientific Reflections on Earth's Waterways.

From how rivers shape the landscape and vice-versa... to how fluctuations in stock markets mimic rivers, there's a lot in here.  The author visits with many thoughts on rivers.
