Worldwide, catchment studies have profoundly influenced science, policy, management, education, and public perception of natural resources. Despite the legacy, some catchment studies have been decommissioned, while others face uncertain futures. In an environment of change, we need them more than ever. During the AGU Centennial, we aim to promote the catchment studies and highlight how long-term and place-based research is vibrant. To that extent, we provide an overview of the submissions to our session and some of those sites that are not present by mapping all the studies that we can identify on this poster. We intend this map, and the entire session, to stimulate discussion about the state of catchment sciences and the sites that make the science possible.
