  • Thomson, Jim (University of Washington Water Center, 2010-02-16)
    The currents that result from the daily rise and fall of the tides are a potential source of clean, renewable energy for coastal communities. Tidal In-Stream Energy Conversion, or TISEC, uses submerged turbines, with no ...
  • Pearsons, Todd (University of Washington Water Center, 2009-05-26)
    Todd Pearsons will present an overview of salmon hatcheries. He will address critical scientific uncertainties related to hatchery programs: increasing long-term natural production, limiting genetic impacts, and limiting ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Steinemann, Anne C. (University of Washinton Water Center, 2009-02)
    This fact sheet provides an overview of fragranced consumer products. The fact sheet is organized into a series of questions and answers, explaining the current situation, health and environmental effects, and consumer ...
  • Rosenberg, Eric (University of Washington Water Center, 2009-02-18)
    The design and performance of stormwater infrastructure is based on a probability distribution of precipitation extremes, together with an underlying assumption that this distribution is statistically stationary. This ...
  • Fagergren, Duane (University of Washington Water Center, 2008-10-14)
    Fagergren will present a discussion of issues affecting Hood Canal: development, pollution, and low oxygen conditions. He will review challenges, assessments, and modeling efforts that have been made to date. He also ...
  • Bechtold, James Scott (University of Washington Water Center, 2005-02-17)
    Bechtold will discuss floodplain ecosystem development. He will describe a study that looked into fine particle distribution as a constraint of organic matter dynamics in floodplain soils. He will present study results and ...
  • Murray, Sarah; Nelson, Peter (2005-10-24)
    Partial Abstract: This paper examines public perceptions of forestry — including how they are formed, what factors influence them, what some of the current perceptions of forestry in the Northwest are, and the implications ...
  • Fletcher, Kathy (University of Washington Water Center, 2008-03-11)
    Fletcher will present an overview of People for Puget Sound, including their mission statement, tools they employ, and partnerships. She will describe current threats to Puget Sound ecosystem health, such as population ...
  • Hamlet, Alan (University of Washington Water Center, 2005-02-17)
    Hamlet will provide an overview of hydrologic changes in the Western United States from 1916-2003. He will consider snowpack, water supply, temperature, precipitation, seasonal water balance, runoff, and soil moisture. He ...
  • Asah, Stanley (University of Washington Water Center, 2010-03-09)
    Power relations influence the way we claim and use natural, and especially water, resources. Predicted impacts of global climate change on water resources in the Pacific Northwest presuppose intensified conflict among ...
  • Rattanaviwatpong, Porranee (University of Washington Water Center, 2004-02-06)
    Rattanaviwatpong will describe a study about water resource conflicts in northern Thailand. She will provide an overview of the research, including the study site, the water resource problem, research objectives, implementation, ...
  • Solomon, Fran (University of Washington Water Center, 2008-11-18)
    Solomon will cover the following topics: 1. Properties of metals. 2. How metals enter aquatic ecosystems. 3. Principles of metal toxicity. 4. Factors affecting metal toxicity. 5. Impacts of specific metals – ...
  • University of Washington Climate Impacts Group (University of Washington Water Center, 2005-01)
    This fact sheet introduces greenhouse gases and global warming, and describes the impact of global warming on the Pacific Northwest climate, water resources, and salmon.
  • Lippke, Bruce; Mason, Larry (2005-10-24)
    The sustainability of working forests and the infrastructure of mills and other forest uses are to a substantial degree interconnected. The impact of working forests on rural jobs has been of special interest given the ...
  • Horner, Richard (University of Washington Water Center, 2009-11-17)
    Richard Horner will describe the elements of Pacific Northwest forest hydrology: trees and soils. He will contrast this to urban hydrology, where the hydrologic services of trees and soils are lost. He will describe the ...
  • Siemann, Dan; Kirkpatrick, DeeAnn (University of Washington Water Center, 2010-02-02)
    Current floodplain management policies in Puget Sound have led to significant development in floodplains, loss of aquatic and riparian habitat, and diminished floodplain function. The consequences include costly floods, ...
  • Palmer, Richard (University of Washington Water Center, 2006-05-09)
    Palmer will review global, regional, and local evidence of climate change. He will discuss how to evaluate the impacts of climate change. He will describe two studies: the Seattle Climate Change Study and the Snohomish ...
