Course Description:
The Applied Fluvial Geomorphology Course is an introductory course designed to familiarize students with the fundamentals of river behavior, the general principles of fluvial geomorphology, sedimentation, hydraulics, restoration, fish habitat improvement, riparian grazing management, and stream bank erosion. Applications of these principles are presented utilizing a stream classification system. Problem solving techniques for watershed management, riparian assessment, fish habitat structure evaluation, stream restoration, non-point source pollution and the integration of ecosystem concepts into watershed management are taught. A combination of both lecture and field application are provided.  This course is a prerequisite for the River Morphology and Applications, River Assessment and Monitoring and River Restoration and Natural Channel Design courses. This has been the basic river morphology course offered throughout North America since 1986.
