    • Collecting Water Samples 

      Unknown author (University of Washington Water Center, 2010)
      This field protocol describes how to collect surface and hyporheic (sub-surface) water samples.
    • Food Web Modeling Applications to Fisheries Managment 

      Beauchamp, Dave (University of Washington Water Center, 2008-01-15)
      Beauchamp will discuss how food web modeling can be applied to fisheries management. He will present several studies to illustrate food web models and how this information can be used to guide management decisions.
    • Macroinvertebrate Monitoring of Redmond and Blakely Ridge Ephemeral Streams 

      Adams, Jeffrey W.; Booth, D.B. (University of Washington Water Center, 1999)
      Since the early 1980’s biological monitoring has developed as a reliable tool for the assessment of stream and watershed health in an ecological context broader than traditional chemical and habitat assessment. In late ...
    • Making Sense from Measurements -- Statistical Advances that Yield More, but Demand More 

      Conquest, Loveday (University of Washington Water Center, 2004-02-06)
      Conquest will review traditional sample designs. Next, she will discuss recent advances: ranked set sampling and multiple-panel sampling. She will describe "Visual Sample Plan" software, and then offer some conclusions.
    • Monitoring Guidelines to Evaluate Effects of Forestry Activities on Streams in the Pacific Northwest and Alaska 

      MacDonald, Lee H.; Smart, Alan W.; Wissmar, Robert C. (University of Washington Water Center, 1991-05)
      This document provides guidance for designing water quality monitoring projects and selecting monitoring parameters. Although the focus is on forest management and streams in the Pacific Northwest and Alaska, a broader ...
    • Monitoring Streams and Watersheds: Reflections on Recent Advances and Persistent Challenges 

      Conquest, Loveday; Ralph, Stephen C. (University of Washington Water Center, 2006-05-30)
      Conquest and Ralph will introduce stream and watershed monitoring efforts, including the purpose of monitoring and an evaluation of how we are doing. They will provide an overview of watershed processes. They will review ...
    • Plume Soup: How a Dash of River Water Affects Washington's Coastal Ecosystem 

      Horner-Devine, Alex (University of Washington Water Center, 2008-02-14)
      Horner-Devine will present research investigating the impact of river water on biological productivity in the Pacific Ocean along the Washington-Oregon coast. River water contribution is approximately 0.02% of the shelf ...
    • 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 ...
    • Sampling Hyporheic Invertebrates 

      Unknown author (2010)
      This field protocol describes how to sample freshwater invertebrates.
    • Spices in Puget Sound and in Seattle's Sewage Effluent 

      Keil, Rick (University of Washington Water Center, 2008-02-14)
      Keil will describe his research measuring spices in Puget Sound. Puget Sound sees seasonal inputs of specific spices, such as vanilla, cinnamon, and thyme. Essentially, what we eat winds up in Puget Sound. Spices can be ...
