  • Morris, Robert (University of Washington Water Center, 2008-04-01)
    Morris will present a history of waterborne diseases, beginning with the outbreak investigation of the cholera pandemic in England in the 1850s. He moves on to discuss problems in mdern public water supplies, including ...
  • Beechie, Timothy; Bolton, Susan (University of Washington Water Center, 1999-01)
    This fact sheet describes salmon restoration approaches in the Pacific Northwest. A recommended approach to restoration is to restore and manage watershed processes responsible for creating and maintaining habitat. This ...
  • Martin, Doug (University of Washington Water Center, 2007-11-27)
    Martin will discuss windthrow in buffer strips. He will compare the effects of logging to the effects of storm exposed landscapes. Next, he will ask: What are the effects of tree windthrow in buffer strips on fish habitat? ...
  • Shellberg, Jeffrey; University of Washington Water Center (University of Washington Water Center, 2002-01)
    This fact sheet introduces the bull trout, a threatened species in the Pacific Northwest. The fact sheet reviews their appearance, distribution, life history, basic biology, and factors leading to population decline. Further ...
  • BRADY, TIMOTHY; MONLEON, VICENTE; GRAY, ANDREW (ECOLOGICAL INDICATORS, 2010)
    We propose using future vascular plant abundances as indicators of future climate in a way analogous to the reconstruction of past environments by many palaeoecologists. To begin monitoring future short-term climate changes ...
  • Hutyra, Lucy R. (University of Washington Water Center, 2008-02-19)
    Hutyra will present the scientific background and characteristics of the Amazon rain forest. She will consider controls on the net ecosystem exchange of CO2, photosynthesis, and respiration. She will ask, is forest growth ...
  • Stonington, Dan (University of Washington Water Center, 2010-01-19)
    In 2005, Cascade Land Conservancy developed The Cascade Agenda, a bold, long-term vision for conservation and smart growth in the Puget Sound region that brings together business, civic and government leaders to accomplish ...
  • Swanson, Mark (2005-10-24)
    The forests of the Pacific Northwest have undergone significant changes in the relative proportions of various forest types, including dramatic reductions in certain habitats such as oldgrowth forests and early successional ...
  • Steinemann, Anne (University of Washington Water Center, 2004-04-20)
    Steinemann will discuss the challenges of water management. She will describe four case studies, each in three parts (problem, project, lessons): 1. Interstate/State (ACT-ACF “Tri-State” Water Wars). 2. State/Regional ...
  • Swint, Suzi Wong (University of Washington Water Center, 2010-01-26)
    Keys to getting the masses to be fish and water-friendly: 1. Be clear about your real goal - Bennett’s Hierarchy. 2. You don’t need to reach EVERY person – Roger’s Diffusion of Innovation. 3. Remember that humans change ...
  • Engstrom, Amy (University of Washington Water Center, 2004-02-06)
    Engstrom will discuss stormwater runoff from residential catchments. She will describe a study that monitored natural drainage systems in Seattle. She will consider construction, performance, and application of knowledge ...
  • Palmer, Richard (University of Washington Water Center, 2006-02-16)
    Palmer will provide an initial framework for the inevitable debate over the threat posed by climate change on salmon recovery plans. He will outline the paths of impacts, including stream temperature, low flows, peak flows, ...
  • Mote, Philip (University of Washington Water Center, 2005-02-17)
    Mote will consider the roles and behavior of temperature and precipitation on stream flow. He will conclude that warming shifts flow from summer to winter, and that warming will continue, although the effect on precipiation ...
  • Bisson, Pete (University of Washington Water Center, 2009-04-28)
    In this presentation, Bisson compares the results of a 50-year retrospective analysis of temperature, precipitation, and flow in the upper Snoqualmie River basin with the University of Washington Climate Impacts Group’s ...
  • Palmer, Richard (University of Washington Water Center, 2007-05-08)
    Palmer will discuss the impact of climate change on water resources. He will frame the problem in context and present an overview of climate change: global and regional. He will outline the hydrologic impacts of climate ...
  • Wood, Andrew (University of Washington Water Center, 2005-02-17)
    Wood will provide an introduction to hydrologic forecasting in the western United States. He will discuss seasonal climate prediction and an experimental hydrologic forecasting system. He will then discuss the results of ...
  • Quinn, Thomas (University of Washington Water Center, 2007-02-14)
    Quinn will point out that many scientists have focused on the predicted global warming trend, and on the ecological processes. He will ask: what about the other effects of climate? And what about evolutionary processes? ...
  • Rodgers, William Jr. (University of Washington Water Center, 2008-02-14)
    Rodgers will discuss water pollution laws. He will begin by reviewing local media stories about environmental legal problems. He will describe laws regarding killer whales, dolphins, reefs, salmon, and walruses. He will ...
  • Torgersen, Christian (University of Washington Water Center, 2008-11-25)
    Torgersen will discuss coldwater refuges: 1. What role do they play in salmonid ecology? 2. How can they be identified at multiple spatial scales? 3. Can their distribution be predicted based on hydrologic and ...
  • Ryan, Clare; Klug, Jacqueline (Journal of Environmental Planning and Management, 2005-07-01)
    In 1998 the Washington State Legislature enacted the Watershed Planning Act, which encourages local governments to develop watershed plans using collaborative processes. Objectives of the statute are to address water ...
