  1. Streamflow Analysis and a Comparison of Hydrologic Metrics in Urban Streams

    This study investigates the hydrologic effects of urbanization in two Portland, Oregon streams through a comparison of three hydrologic metrics. Hydrologic metrics used in this study are the mean annual runoff...

  2. Type and Timing of Stream Flow Changes in Urbanizing Watersheds in the Eastern U.S.

    Linking the type and timing of hydrologic changes with patterns of urban growth is essential to identifying the underlying mechanisms that drive declines in urban aquatic ecosystems. In six urbanizing...

  3. Northwest Forest Plan The First 15 Years (1994-2008): Watershed Condition Status and Trend

    We used two data sets to evaluate stream and watershed condition for sixth-field watersheds in each aquatic province within the Northwest Forest Plan (NWFP) area: stream data and upslope data. The stream...

  4. Northwest Forest Plan The First 20 Years (1994-2013): Watershed Condition Status and Trend

    We used two data sets to evaluate stream and upslope/riparian condition for sixth-field watersheds in each aquatic province within the Northwest Forest Plan (NWFP) area. The stream evaluation was based on...

  5. Watershed Management and Private Lands: Moving Beyond Financial Incentives to Encourage Land Stewardship

    Public water utilities are tasked with providing high quality, inexpensive water often sourced from watersheds representing a diverse mix of public and private land ownership. There is increasing recognition...

  6. Aboriginal Fisheries of the Lower Columbia River

    This chapter, included in Chinookan Peoples of the Lower Columbia, published by the University of Washington Press in 2013, explores the aboriginal fisheries of the Lower Columbia River. The authors reviewed...

  7. Focus on a STEM, Based in Place, Watershed Curriculum: A confluence of stormwater, humans, knowledge, attitudes, and skills

    This case study investigated the potential of a place-based watershed curriculum, using STEM principles, to increase watershed literacy and knowledge of human impacts on stormwater in the environment. A...

  8. Engineering a Healthier Watershed: Middle School Students Use Engineering Design to Lessen the Impact of Their Campus'...

    It is important that students understand not only how their local watershed functions, but also how it is being impacted by impervious surfaces. Additionally, students need experience exploring the scientific...

  9. A Geospatial Tool for Wetland Prioritization at the Watershed Scale

    There is an increasing demand for assessing ecosystem functions for freshwater wetlands, especially when comparing or prioritizing among wetlands at the watershed scale. We estimated the relative potential of...

  10. Using Spatially Explicit Indicators to Investigate Watershed Characteristics and stream temperature relationships

    We generate a series of novel indicators of spatially explicit watershed permeability and runoff characteristics to examine the relationship between land cover and water temperature parameters in a rapidly...
