    • Assessing Green Roofs for Stormwater Management in Western Washington 

      Taylor, William J. (University of Washington Water Center, 2010-06-01)
      Interest in the use of green roofs for stormwater flow control (among other benefits) has increased both internationally and locally. Taylor Associates has been conducting hydrologic monitoring of runoff from a number of ...
    • Data, Data, and More Data: Managing and Making Sense of Data from Existing PNW Salmon and Habitat Monitoring Programs 

      Volk, Carol J. (University of Washington Water Center, 2009-05-05)
      Carol Volk will present an introduction to managing and understanding data. She will cover the following topics: 1. What is data? 2. Where is all the data? 3. What do we do with it? 4. Is it useful? As examples, she reviews ...
    • Economics and Salmon Habitat Conservation: Welcome to the Data-Poor Real World 

      Plummer, Mark (University of Washington Water Center, 2006-10-24)
      Benefit-cost analysis is as natural to economists as breathing—which sometimes gets us into trouble when we try to ply our trade in a data vacuum. In the data-poor real world, the practice of benefit-cost analysis often ...

    • A Rapid Land Cover Classification Method for Use in Urban Watershed Analysis 

      Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering; Hill, Kristina; Botsford, Erik; Booth, Derek B. (University of Washington Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, 2003-03)
      Because of the profound effect of urban development on aquatic systems, characterizing the land cover of a region is critical for a variety of resource management applications. In the Pacific Northwest, this characterization ...
    • 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 ...
    • Riparian Conversion Monitoring Data Collection Protocols 

      Shellberg, Jeffrey (University of Washington Water Center, 1999-01)
      This fact sheet introduces riparian conversion monitoring. As more and more riparian habitat restoration projects are developed, there is an increased need to monitor the effectiveness of these projects. Therefore, ...
