This course explores GIS methods used to study and manage watershed, with a focus on their hydrologic and geomorphic systems-from upland source areas to the stream channels that transport their runoff and provide habitat for riparian species. The course begins with a brief exploration of the nature and processes of watersheds and drainage systems. GIS support for watersheds includes not only spatial analysis and map development, but also field map generation and the creation of graphical products (e.g. longitudinal profiles) from field studies. GIS tools will be applied to problems of hillslope runoff and soil erosion prediction, interpretation of historical and current runoff-discharge relationships, and modeling the effects of changing land use.
