Restoration Design - Geomorphic Principles

Background

Why we’re covering it

  • Crash-course on the ‘form’ side of geomorphology, as a grading plan is fundamentally a reflection of how your design changes those forms
  • Help you understand the building blocks of riverscapes
  • Introduce you to the tools and terminology to help you map riverscapes

Learning Outcomes

  • Gain direct experience applying knowledge as a watershed scientist to working on real-world aquatic ecosystem restoration and management problems (e.g. stream restoration, watershed management,wetland restoration) with practitioners.
  • Develop a working understanding of different aspects and approaches to restoration design and create two types of design and evaluate their ability to achieve project objectives. Articulate specific, testable design hypotheses for your own designs.
