Why read a story when you can jump into it and live the story for yourself? Immerse yourself in a StoryMap about carbon breakdown in wetlands.
Who are we?
Savitri, Hosna, Ali, and Nicola are undergraduate students from Deakin University who are interested in innovative approaches to help the environment.
What is a story map?
Story maps, much like 3D pop up books, are an interactive way to tell a story. The viewer can easily navigate to information, pictures, and videos through a map.

What is our story map about?
The story map we have created follows the journey of the TeaComposition H2O initiative led by Stacey Trevathan-Tackett. The initiative uses common tea bags in wetland ecosystems across the world to track the carbon breakdown over a three-year period.
The same type of tea bags were used at each site to be able to obtain a better understanding on the effect the specific ecosystems were having on the decomposition of the tea. Over 100 participants across the world aided the project and regularly gathered data from the sites during the three years.
