Watershed Science

Changes to the input of water, sediment and wood can upset a river system's natural balance and result in changes to the watershed and its dependent ecosystems. The WPN Team applies remote sensing, field investigations and modeling to determine both past and current watershed disturbances and changes to watershed processes and aquatic and riparian habitats. This approach addresses the various interrelationships between the land uses and stream channel conditions, and allows for a holistic approach to habitat improvement at the watershed scale rather than a "band-aid" fix at a particular site.
