Applications of the High Definition Stream Survey

The High Definition Stream Survey (HDSS) approach was created to rapidly gather continuous geo-referenced data in a single pass for a broad range of stream and streambank conditions by integrating GPS, video, depth, water quality and other sensors. Results from HDSS data can be used to prioritize and locate areas of high erosion, determine the extent and distribution of instream habitat, locate areas that contribute to poor stream conditions, define the geomorphic condition for the stream, document restoration results and provide a powerful "virtual tour" experience. Trutta Environmental Solutions recently surveyed over 120 miles of the Duck River, TN in only eight days which also included over 100 cross sections to prove in depth bathymetric measurements for the Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation.

Are you prepared for Sea Level Rise? Shoreline Protection

This will be a case study describing local sea-level rise prediction and adaptive planning in Humboldt Bay in Northern California. Sea-level rise along with ocean acidification, seismic hazards, especially tsunamis, are already impacting communities, agriculture, and industries around the Humboldt Bay and climate change adaption is no longer theoretical. Learn about how the first lines of defense, featuring natural area buffers and shoreline protection are being implemented.

Arid and Semiarid Soils: Characteristics and Challenges

Revegetation, reclamation, and mitigation become increasingly difficult as water becomes the most limiting factor for plant growth. These problems often are compounded in semiarid and arid regions by salinity, which further restricts plant growth, and sodicity, which destroys soil structure. The inability to establish surface vegetative cover exacerbates problems with both wind and water erosion. This presentation will address which soil and climate properties to evaluate to predict the success of revegetation efforts, and identify methods to address the specific management challenges encountered in working with arid and semiarid region soils.

Basic Hydrology - Part 1

Knowledge of hydrology is essential for individuals interested in water quality and those involved with land use management activities including erosion and sediment control, designing and reviewing stormwater management plans, as well as local and state regulators and decision makers. This course will describe and discuss the factors that influence stormwater runoff and demonstrate the methodology and procedures to quantify runoff volumes. Precipitation, drainage areas, hydrologic soil groups, land use cover and hydrologic conditions will be explained, through a design example, to convert rainfall to runoff by using USDA-NRCS TR55 hydrologic analyses. Watershed runoff volumes will be calculated.

Basic Hydrology - Part 2

This course will take participants through the evaluation and determination of the parameters for the time of concentration for a watershed and its application in determining the peak rate of runoff for different storm frequencies in the watershed. The USDA-NRCS unit hydrograph use will be explained and its use to calculate the peak discharge will be demonstrated through a design example. Comparison of pre-developed and post-developed discharges will be made for estimating stormwater detention basin sizing.
