Stream Quantification Tool Field Camp 

Workshop Description

This course is for individuals who have taken the Stream Functions Pyramid Workshop and experienced practitioners who want further training on how to collect and enter field data into the Stream Quantification Tool (SQT). Three out of five full days will be spent collecting field data using both the rapid and detailed methods. Two days (plus an evening) will be spent processing the field data, entering it into the SQT, and playing with functional lift and loss scenarios. There are no classroom lectures beyond a brief review the morning of day 1.

This is an intense course. It is designed for scientists and engineers who plan to use the SQT on future projects. Most days will be spent in the field regardless of weather conditions (unless the conditions are unsafe). One evening will be spent processing data. And the course doesn't end until 5:00p on Friday. This is a beautiful part of North Carolina, so stay the weekend and enjoy the scenery. If you've had the pyramid course or are an experienced practitioner who likes adventure, this course is for you. Here is a general overview of the week.

Day 1 - SQT Review and Rapid Assessment of Impacted Stream Reaches

Day 2 - Detailed Assessment of a Reference Stream

Day 3 - Classroom Day: Process and enter data into SQT. Play with scenarios

Day 4 - Detailed Assessment of a Restored Site. Process data and enter into SQT.

Day 5 - Rapid Assessment of a Field Site. Process data and enter into SQT.
