Rill—Common Connections

An open platform interconnecting environmental events


Platform is based on the following concept: (a) Researchers create nodes by describing a specific event that happened or is happening in a specific area. (b) Nodes are connected by researchers using causal relationships. The result is a network of events, where each event can be represented in two states: as cause, or as effect.
