Synopsis: This online class serves as an introduction to the fundamentals of functional design and provides the means to rapidly assess the distribution of hydrology on your site and create useable hydrographs for presentation of your wetland design.

Additional Information:

Building on the student's understanding of wetland functions, this course will also guide you through the many factors required to plan and design a functional wetland. Through online lessons, you will learn "real world" applications with an emphasis on two key components that drive success: DDT (depth, duration & timing) of site hydrology and the landscape position.

Featured Topics

  • Hydrogeomorphology: The importance of landscape position and where water is coming from
  • Water Budget Calculation: Water inputs/outputs and TR-55 runoff curves
  • The Thornthwaite Method: One method for calculating evapotranspiration
  • Estimating Stream Flow and Producing Basic Hydrographs: Create useable hydrographs for presentation of your wetland design
Target Audience: Alumni,  General Public
