    • Effect of Forest Harvesting and Riparian Buffers on Headwater Stream Temperatures 

      Edmonds, Robert (University of Washington Water Center, 2010-02-17)
      Headwater streams are small in size, but can be 80% of stream length. They have a high density in steep terrain and have a high biodiversity of invertebrates, amphibians and fish. However, they are very sensitive to landscape ...
    • Landscape Pattern, Stream Network Structure, and Fish Distribution in Headwater Catchments 

      Torgersen, Christian (University of Washington Water Center, 2006-01-10)
      Torgersen will describe a study investigating coastal cutthroat trout. He will evaluate landscape disturbance, spatial patterns, and explanatory models. Finally, he will offer conclusions about the links between geology, ...
    • Measuring the Puget Lowland Landscape with LiDAR 

      Haugerud, Ralph (University of Washington Water Center, 2006-02-16)
      Haugerud will present an overview of LiDAR (Light Detection and Ranging), a new surveying technology. He will discuss looking at the land surface with LiDAR, describing the forest canopy with LiDAR, and a LiDAR data ...
    • 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 ...
    • Research on Streamside Issues Through the Wood Compatibility Initiative 

      Bolton, Susan; Berman, Cara H. (University of Washington Water Center, 2002-11)
      Through the Wood Compatibility Initiative (WCI), the Center for Streamside Studies at the University of Washington has undertaken a series of research efforts addressing production and protection of forest, fish, wildlife, ...
    • Riparian Soils: a Literature Review 

      Mikkelsen, Kerri; Vesho, Ilir (University of Washington Water Center, 2000-03)
      This literature review covers a variety of factors that contribute to riparian soils. These factors include water, geomorphic processes, coarse woody debris, litterfall and decomposition, nutrient dynamics, and red alder. ...
    • Surveying Stream Cross-Sections 

      Unknown author (University of Washington Water Center, 2010)
      This field protocol describes how to survey stream cross-sections to give a representation of the geology of the channel.
    • The Underpinnings of Riparian Tree Production 

      Naiman, Robert; Latterell, Joshua (University of Washington Water Center, 2007-02-14)
      Naiman and Latterell will discuss riparian biocomplexity. In particular, they will focus on the production dynamics of riparian trees, and possible drivers of tree production. They will conclude that effective management ...
    • Valley-Scale Landscape Structure as a Component of Hydrologic Response in Complex Mountain Basins 

      Weekes, Anne (University of Washington Water Center, 2005-02-17)
      Weekes will describe her research into the underlying landscape structure and its effects on the hydrologic regime of mountain watersheds. She will provide context, outline her research design, and present results and conclusions.
