This course is designed to train individuals to delineate stream types using the stream classification method as published in 'Applied River Morphology', Rosgen, 1996. A combination of lecture and field sessions will provide practical experience in the topics listed below.
Prerequisite: FIS3210 Applied Fluvial Geomorphology
•Integrate fluvial geomorphology concepts with problem solving techniques .
•Determine and map land forms, land types and valley types .
•Pre-map stream types on aerial photos and topographic maps .
•Field validation of the bankfull stage at a USGS stream gaging station.
•Use field methods to properly measure morphological variables .
•Observe all of the major stream types, A-G, in the field .
•Discuss ecosystem management applications using stream types such as:.
•fish habitat structure evaluation.
•riparian management/grazing methods.
•watershed management/cumulative effects assessment and analysis .
•hydraulic and sediment relations engineering design concepts .
Field staff involved in stream habitat assessment and restoration. This course is a pre-requisite to the FIS3410 River Assessment and Monitoring - Level III course.
