Hydrometry & Hydrology – The Next Generation

At Aquatic Informatics we are encouraged to take an active role in the community and so I was quick to agree when I was recently asked do a short course on hydrology for a conference on Global Stewardship at a local private school. It turned out to be a lot of fun, for me at least. I took a look on a map and realized that because the school is located at the crest of a hill and on the edge of a large forested park it provided an excellent opportunity to do a comparison and contrast between forest and urban hydrology. There is a lovely stream running through the forest, which provided an excellent contrast to an adjacent stream course that has been completely built over with housing.
