This 2-day short course with third day optional field trip will provide an overview of fluvial geomorphology with a thorough discussion of key concepts such as the principles of equilibrium, channel classification methods, channel evolution, and sediment transport capacity.
Trout Unlimited, US Forest Service and US Fish & Wildlife Service are presenting a workshop on stream restoration and flood resiliency to educate the audience on stream functions and infrastructure vulnerability, and the relation between the two; and to review methods to improve flood resili
We visit two classes over two days and give them hands-on experience on the stream table to test and experience fluvial geomorphology. What happens in a flood? Where should we build houses? What happens when we channelize a stream?
