    This week on World Ocean Radio we talk about springs, those fresh water seeps that serve as an integral part of the earth's water system. We introduce listeners to a new app, Hide and Seep, developed by the Spring Stewardship Institute in collaboration with the US National Parks Service Bureau of Land Management and ESRI. Hide and Seep is a mapping software tool that allows citizen scientists to locate water sources and add them to a vast database of fresh water springs.
