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.
