  • Naiman, Robert; Latterell, Joshua (University of Washington Water Center, 2007-02-14)
    Naiman and Latterell will discuss riparian biocomplexity. In particular, they will focus on the production dynamics of riparian trees, and possible drivers of tree production. They will conclude that effective management ...
  • University of Washington Earth Initiative; University of Washington Water Center; College of Ocean and Fishery Sciences (University of Washington, 2005-11-28)
    The University of Washington is working to provide knowledge and resources for long-term environmental solutions within Puget Sound and beyond. Ensuring that this information is synthesized and communicated effectively is ...
  • Booth, Derek B.; Leavitt, Jennifer; Peterson, Kim (University of Washington Water Center, 1996)
    Our study of permeable pavements has evolved from a growing recognition of the limitations of traditional stormwater management. To keep water in the soil we must allow access of water to that soil across much of the ...
  • Franklin, Jerry (University of Washington Water Center, 2010-02-17)
    Franklin will present an update on the National Ecological Observatory Network (NEON), a national environonmental monitoring effort. NEON's vision is to forecast future states of ecological systems for the advancement of ...
  • Brett, Michael (University of Washington Water Center, 2005-10-11)
    Brett will discuss: 1. Land cover impacts on the central tendency in stream water nutrient concentrations. 2. Long term trends in urban stream nutrient concentrations. 3. Flow, seasonal and land cover impacts on daily ...
  • Brett, Michael (University of Washington Water Center, 2004-02-06)
    Brett will review phosphorus transport in Seattle area urban and forest streams. He will describe a study that created a high resolution stream phosphorus concentration database in order to develop statistical time series ...
  • Booth, Derek B.; Karr, James R.; Schauman, Sally; Konrad, Christopher P.; Morley, Sarah A.; Larson, Marit G.; Henshaw, Patricia C.; Nelson, Erin J.; Burges, Stephen J. (University of Washington Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, 2001-03-30)
    Our goal in this project has been to develop a robust approach to urban stream rehabilitation, using examples from the Puget Lowland region of western Washington, that blends knowledge from the physical, biological, and ...
  • Booth, Derek B. (University of Washington Water Center, 1991)
    This paper describes the causes and effects of urban-induced changes to the hydrology of a drainage basin. To understand the cause of change, the hydrologic behavior of the undisturbed basin first will be explained. The ...
  • Barton, Cynthia (University of Washington Water Center, 2009-10-27)
    Cynthia Barton will outline a brief history of the USGS, including its recent reorganization and mission. Next, she will describe how the USGS carries out the Water Program through a structure that consists of: 1. ...
  • Mollot, Lauren (University of Washington Water Center, 2005-02-17)
    Mollot will ask the question: Under what conditions should we restore conifer to stands currently dominated by hardwood in our effort to rehabilitate fish habitat? As a case study, she will consider the Cedar River watershed. ...
  • Packman, James; Comings, Karen; Booth, Derek (Canadian Water Resources Association, 1999-10-01)
    The replacement of forestland with impervious surfaces during urbanization can have significant effects on watershed hydrology and the quality of stormwater runoff. One component of water quality, total suspended solids ...
  • Battisti, David (University of Washington Water Center, 2004-02-06)
    Battisti will introduce the University of Washington Earth Initiative. He will present the goals of the project as well as its proposed activities and future directions.
  • Weekes, Anne (University of Washington Water Center, 2005-02-17)
    Weekes will describe her research into the underlying landscape structure and its effects on the hydrologic regime of mountain watersheds. She will provide context, outline her research design, and present results and conclusions.
  • Cammermayer, Jon W.; Horner, Richard R.; Chechowitz, Naomi (University of Washington Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, 2000-12)
    This study had three objectives and associated work components: Component 1 -- assess routine highway ditch cleaning alternatives ("Service Levels") for water quality benefits; Component 2—survey biofiltration swales to ...
  • Montgomery, David (University of Washington Water Center, 2006-02-16)
    Montgomery will discuss the role of coarse woody debris in river ecosystems. He concludes that one of the few salmon conservation strategies that might work over a long run would be to restore a network of forested river ...
  • Richey, Jeffrey E. (University of Washington Water Center, 2008-11-04)
    Richey will present Puget Sound Regional Synthesis Model (PRISM). The model includes feedbacks between biophysical processes and impacts, environmental stressors, and urban processes in the Puget Sound. Richey will describe ...
  • Oppenheimer, Peter (University of Washington Water Center, 2009-10-13)
    Peter Oppenheimer will present visualization tools, including Virtual Puget Sound and Google Earth, that can help us understand complex systems, such as Puget Sound. Virtual Puget Sound can be used as a tool for visualizing ...
