Water transcends boundaries, cycling through land, atmosphere, rivers, and living things. This everyday substance is fundamental to biological, chemical, meteorological, and geological processes; one cannot study science without learning about its extraordinary properties. These interwoven attributes of water make the challenges it presents complicated and convoluted. The research used to problem-solve water issues is necessarily interdisciplinary.
