    • Differences in West Coast Watersheds and the Streams They Create 

      Booth, Derek (University of Washington Water Center, 2008-02-14)
      Booth will discuss how unique watersheds create unique streams. Understanding or predicting stream behavior can't always be done by borrowing knowledge from somewhere else, because the watersheds that create these streams ...
    • Just When We Were Getting It Right: Stormwater Management for the 21st Century in the Pacific Northwest 

      Booth, Derek (University of Washington Water Center, 2007-02-14)
      Booth will review development in the Puget Sound region. He will ask: have landscape-scale changes resulted in a landscape-scale of mitigation? The answer: not exactly. Mainly, we use end-of-pipe detention systems. Even ...
    • Monitoring Urban Streams: Strategies and Protocols 

      Scholz, Jenna; Booth, Derek (University of Washington Water Center, 2000-01)
      This fact sheet introduces monitoring strategies and protocols for urban stream management. The fact sheet presents an approach to crafting the most appropriate monitoring program across a variety of settings. Things to ...
    • Monitoring Urban Streams: Strategies and Protocols for Humid-Region Lowland Systems 

      Scholz, Jenna; Booth, Derek (Center for Urban Water Resources Management, 1999-01-01)
      Governmental mandates and public awareness have forced progressively smaller and less sophisticated agencies and organizations to initiate stream monitoring programs, particularly in urban and urbanizing areas. Yet many ...
    • A Prospective Graduate Program in River Restoration at the University of Washington 

      Booth, Derek (University of Washington Water Center, 2006-02-16)
      Booth will outline a plan to graduate Masters-level students at the University of Washington with professional-quality, interdisciplinary training in the principles and practice of river restoration. He will define river ...
    • Regional, Synchronous Field Determination of Summertime Stream Temperatures in Western Washington 

      Booth, Derek (University of Washignton Water Center, 2001)
      Cold-water fisheries can be strongly affected by elevated summertime stream temperatures. The determinants of stream temperature are relatively well understood in the abstract, but their quantification in any given watershed ...
    • Sediment Budget of a Mixed-Use, Urbanizing Watershed 

      Nelson, Erin; Booth, Derek (The Water Center, 2001-01-01)
      The Issaquah Creek basin is an urbanizing watershed of 144 square km in western Washington, where sediment aggradation of the main channel and delivery of fine sediment into a large downstream lake have raised serious ...
    • 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 ...
    • A Tale of Two Rivers: or, It's a Long Way from Tiger Mountain to Topatopa Bluff 

      Booth, Derek (University of Washington Water Center, 2007-05-29)
      Booth will present a comparative analysis of Issaquah Creek (Washington) and Santa Paula Creek (California) watersheds. He will discuss these two watersheds, including their geological structures, hillslope stability, ...
    • Using Turbidity to Determine Total Suspended Solids in Urbanizing Streams in the Puget Lowlands 

      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 ...
