GWSP film on "Water in the Anthropocene"

Prepared for the international conference on Water in the Anthropocene, Bonn, Germany, 21-24 May, 2013

"Water in the Anthropocene" is a film charting the global impact of humanity on the global water cycle. Evidence is growing that our global footprint is now so significant that we have driven Earth into a new geological epoch: the Anthropocene. Human activities such as damming and agriculture are changing the global water cycle in significant ways.

As datasets build upon one another, the film charts Earth's changing global water cycle, why it is changing, and what this means for the future. The vertical spikes that appear in the film represent the 48,000 large dams that have been built.
