Water plays a critical role in the physical, chemical, and biological processes of ecosystems. It is a dominant factor in landscape development and is a valuable resource, even in the water-rich Pacific Northwest. This program will focus on the groundwater and surface water components of the hydrologic cycle. Students will learn quantitative methods of assessing the distribution and movement of water in these environments and have the opportunity to use GIS to display and assess spatial data. Water quality (aqueous chemistry) and some aspects of water management will also be covered. Local field trips will provide an opportunity for students to observe and assess hydrologic systems. There will also be an extended four-day field trip to eastern Washington.
