Summary of Changes Made in This Calendar - Forest Hydrology & Watershed Management

Natural Resources Management 4459 Forest Hydrology & Watershed Management
The goal is to introduce students to basic concepts in forest hydrology. These include components of a water balance (i.e., precipitation and interception, evapotranspiration, storage, and exports), watershed operation, and how vegetation, soils, and other biophysical attributes of the watershed interact with the water balance. This introduction will be followed by discussions regarding stream channel processes (e.g., erosion and channel morphology), water quality, and watershed, wetland, and riparian function and management.
