Tuesday 3-4 pm in ALS 3006
Drainage Basin Characterization

note new day & time TUESDAY 3-4pm

With Lidar, GIS, Rivertools, and other computing resources, drainage basin characterization has never been easier. The meaning of such metrics remains uncertain. Thus, we propose to review historical literature, current literature describing new techniques and/or metrics, or application of characterizations to problem solving. Potential time uses could even include tutorials on how to use widely-available software.
