STREAMS projects strive to understand the links between watershed science, policy, and society at all levels. We seek to develop a consortium of scholars, resource managers,and community members with a shared understanding of these problems and the ability totranslate scientific results into information relevant to regional, national, and sub-national management processes.
Since 2003, our accomplishments have included:
Science-based approach to innovative engineering solutions
- Research projects at the local, state, and regional level.
- Suite of freely available spreadsheet tools for analyzing and organizing stream geomorphology data.
- International work on water resources issues in South Africa.
Technology and Information Transfer
- Training workshops on the geomorphology and ecology of stream systems and innovative agricultural best management practices.
- National/Regional conferences on stream and watershed-related topics.
- Refereed Journal articles, books, technical reports and factsheet publications.
- Technical assistance and outreach to a multitude of stakeholders.
- Multi-media education and training tools.
Partnerships with variety of disciplines and stakeholders
- Collaborative partnerships including federal, regional, international, state/local, non-governmental, industry stakeholders.
