      Devol, Allan; Newton, Jan (University of Washington Water Center, 2010-02-17)
      Devol and Newton will provide an overview of Puget Sound observation efforts. They will introduce Oceanic Remote Chemical-Opitcal Analyzer (ORCA) buoys. They will describe the results of several current observation programs: ...
    • Headwater Stream Chemistry in Western Washington: 20 Years of Study 

      Edmonds, Robert (University of Washington Water Center, 2006-05-16)
      Edmonds will present an overview of headwater streams. He will discuss stream chemistry studies, including the effects of excess nitrogen inputs in the biogeochemical cycle. Next, he will describe in detail four stream ...
    • Headwater Streams and Red Alder 

      Volk, Carol (University of Washington Water Center, 2005-01)
      This fact sheet describes a study that investigated watershed coverage of alder and dissolved nitrate concentrations in streams. Management implications and the role of red alder in water chemistry and biota are discussed.
    • Headwater Streams: How Much Protection Do They Need? 

      Edmonds, Robert (University of Washington Water Center, 2007-02-14)
      Edmonds will introduce the subject of headwater streams. He will review indicators of change. Next, he will describe two headwater studies in Washington State, and offer some concluding remarks.

      Monohan, Carrie Elise (University of Washington Water Center, 2004-02-06)
      Monohan will describe a study investigating the function of riparian buffers. First, she will provide some background about Puget Sound lowland agricultural streams: salmonid and agricultural uses. She will outline a ...
    • Pilot Scale Constructed Wastewater Treatment Wetland 

      Jensen, Lenore (University of Washington Water Center, 2001-01)
      This fact sheet introduces the concept of artificially created wetlands, known as "constructed" or "treatment" wetlands, which are created as a method for treating wastewater. The technology, role of vegetation, and design ...
    • Regional-Scale Riparian Vegetation Changes: a Contributor to Hood Canal Dissolved Oxygen Issues? 

      Roberts, Mindy (University of Washington Water Center, 2005-02-17)
      Roberts will discuss riparian vegetation changes, and how these may contribute to Hood Canal's dissolved oxygen issues. She will present historical evidence of the shift in plants, based on pollen evidence in Lake Washington. ...
    • Stormwater Performance of Permeable Pavement Systems 

      Booth, Derek; Brattebo, Benjamin; Friebel, Jennifer (University of Washington Water Center, 2004-01)
      This fact sheet introduces permeable pavements as a solution for stormwater management. First, background information is presented about urban stormwater runoff. Next, a study is described, where a permeable pavement test ...
