Reproductive Success of Colonizing Chinook and Coho Salmon
(University of Washington Water Center, 2009-10-20)
Joseph Anderson will begin with a brief history of efforts to colonize Chinook salmon, as well as some alternative hypotheses. Next, he will present a research project that examined the success of Chinook and coho salmon colonizing efforts in Washington State. He will consider: 1. Population productivity. 2. Individual ...

From Feasibility to Monitoring -- Challengesof Implementing Large-Scale Floodplain Restoration Projects: Snoqualmie Mainstem
(University of Washington Water Center, 2010-04-27)
Dan Eastman will use a project at the Chinook Bend Natural Area on the Snoqualmie River to demonstrate what it takes to design, permit, and implement a large-scale restoration project in the complex regulatory and social environment of King County. He will focus on explaining how the uncertainty associated with process-based ...
Regional Planning, Policy, and Floodplain Science Introduction
(University of Washington Water Center, 2010-04-13)
Janne Kaje will provide a brief introduction to the three-week series on salmon recovery planning, policy, science and implementation. The setting for the series is the Snoqualmie Watershed in eastern King County, where salmon recovery, the future of agriculture, rural population growth and the everpresent risk of flooding ...
Cold Water Fishes and Thermal Refuges in Hot Water
(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 geomorphic associations? 4. How can they be protected and restored in degraded rivers? 5. Behavior and ...
Nutrient Retention in Riparian Buffers in Puget Lowland Agricultural Streams, Skagit County, Washington
(University of Washington Water Center, 2004-02-06)
Monohan will describe a study investigating the function of riparian buffers. First, she will provide some background about Puget Sound lowland agricultural streams: salmonid and agricultural uses. She will outline a comparison of pasture and row crop streams. She will also review further analyses of watershed area, land use ...
Above the Dam: Salmon Colonization of New Habitat
(University of Washington Water Center, 2005-02-17)
Anderson will discuss salmon colonization. He will define homing versus straying, and review the history of salmon colonization. He will describe a project to pass salmon above Landsburg Dam in Washington State. This study used radio telemetry to record colonist exploration and identify spawning sites.
Effects of Turbidity and Suspended Solids on Salmonids
(University of Washington Water Center, 2001-11)
Human activities in Northwestern watersheds, including logging, grazing, agriculture, mining, road building, urbanization, and commercial construction contribute to periodic pulses or chronic levels of suspended sediment in streams. Suspended sediment is associated with negative effects on the spawning, growth, and ...
