      >Mediterranean rivers pose a unique challenge to designers and
      >environmental planners due to extreme changes both in flow and in channel
      >form. In her research, Sarah has compiled field based case studies
      of six
      >Mediterranean rivers in hope of finding design strategies for reactivating
      >urban river corridors in California. She recorded the structural
      >relationship between the rivers and the cities that she has visited
      and
      >observed how the river corridor is being used.
