Stream Habitat Measurement Techniques
Course #FIS2115

DATES and LOCATION: August 7-11, 2000 * NCTC, Shepherdstown, WV

TUITION: $650 (Non-FWS)

LENGTH: 5 days, 3.6 CEU's, 2 semester hours credit

TARGET AUDIENCE: Personnel with minimal stream experience involved with
                       habitat assessment projects.

The purpose of this course is to provide the knowledge and skills required
to participate in studies assessing physical habitat characteristics of
streams. Techniques learned may be applied to a variety of programs
including in-stream flow (e.g., IFIM), monitoring, restoration, habitat
quality (e.g., HEP), and fish-habitat relationship studies. Classroom
presentations (45%) are integrated with ample hands-on field activities
(55%). Attributes characterized, measured, or identified include stream
regional setting (ecoregion, watershed, hydrologic unit, and physiographic
province), basin geomorphic properties, land cover types, hydrology,
channel dimensions and roughness, channel structure and pattern,
mesohabitat types, discharge, velocity, depth, substrate type and
embeddedness, cover, bank condition, and riparian vegetation. Discussions
and exercises will address additional topics as site selection, transect
and sampling point placement, and reach mapping (cross-sectional,
longitudinal, and plan views). From stream reach surveys, participants
will complete a comprehensive written habitat assessment and classification
for a nearby reach. Participants also will learn to operate equipment used
to survey and measure habitat variables.
