Teaching

Principles of Watershed Hydrology (FOR 3104) Study of hydrology in watersheds.  Qualitative and quantitative principles of physical hydrological processes governing the movement, storage, and transformation of water on the Earth’s surface as influenced by watershed characteristics, including human modifications. Pre: Junior standing Pre: MATH 1206 or MATH 2015. (3H,3C) (every spring)

Forest Soil and Watershed Management (FOR 4354) Properties and processes of soil and water in forests. Emphasis on management for the delivery of ecosystem goods and services. Includes analysis and interpretation in field and laboratory. (2H,3L,3C) (every fall)

Hillslope and Watershed Hydrology (FOR 5144) Physical concepts of hydrological processes that affect age, origin, and flowpaths of water from hillslope to watershed scales.  Analysis of current and historical research methods.  Hydrological science as an interdisciplinary topic. Pre: Graduate standing (3H, 3C) (spring even years)

Stable Isotopes in Ecology and Hydrology (FOR 5984, special study) Fundamental knowledge of water, carbon, and nitrogen stable isotopes, and skills in their use and analysis, in order to apply stable isotope techniques to explore processes in ecological and hydrological systems. (4H, 3C) (spring odd years)

Watershed Assessment, Management, and Policy (NR 4614/5614G) Multidisciplinary perspectives of assessment, management, and policy issues for protecting and improving watersheds ecosystems. Topics include: monitoring and modeling approaches for assessment, risk-based watershed assessment, geographic information systems for watershed analysis, decision support systems and computerized decision tools for watershed management, policy alternatives for watershed protection, urban watersheds, and current issues in watershed management. (2H, 2C) (spring 2015)

I also contribute to other courses in the Department of Forest Resources and Environmental Conservation and elsewhere on campus.  In addition, I coordinate the Watershed Management graduate certificate program and the Watershed Management undergraduate minor.  For information on these programs, please go to the Water Center website.
