Ecohydrology (3)

Course Level: Undergraduate/Graduate

This course examines how hydrological processes at macro and watershed scales influence aquatic ecology. It also examines the influence of velocity, volume, flow path (e.g. overland, groundwater, pipe-flow), and water chemistry on stream biology/ecology. Emphasis is on freshwater and estuarine systems. Students are introduced to quantitative modeling of hydrological processes. Usually offered alternate falls.
