Stream Quantification Tool Field Camp 

Workshop Description

This course is for individuals who have taken the Stream Functions Pyramid Workshop and want further training on how to collect and enter field data into the Stream Quantification Tool (SQT). The course includes rapid and detailed assessments of degraded and restored stream conditions. This is an intense course. It is designed for scientists, managers 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).

This is a beautiful part of North Carolina, so stay the weekend and enjoy the scenery or tour a local vineyard. If you've had the pyramid course and like adventure, this course is for you. Here is a general overview of the week.

Day 1 - Rapid Assessment of an Impacted Stream Reach

Day 2 - Detailed Assessment of an Impacted Stream Reach

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

Day 4 - Rapid and Detailed Assessment of a Restored Reach

Day 5 - Process Data and Enter into SQT

Who Should Attend?

Anyone who has taken the Stream Functions Pyramid Workshop and is generally familiar with the Stream Quantification Tool. If you want to take this course and have not taken the pyramid course, please contact Stream Mechanics at 919-747-9448 for further discussion.
