Additional Information:

How important is learning hydrology? Who ever heard of a dry wetland! By understanding the hydrology, you will understand the distribution and circulation of water in a wetland. If you are planning to delineate, manage, or construct a wetland, you will need to be able to identify and calculate the movement of water through the wetland.

In the morning, you will review the connection between soil, water, and vegetation which creates a wetland. After lunch, gain practical experience using a soil auger to investigate hydrologic evidence for wetland delineation, water table depth and evaluation, and Hydrogeomorphic Models (HGM’s) identification.
