Details/Description

Building on your understanding of wetland functions, this course will guide you on the many factors required to plan and design a functional wetland with an emphasis on two key components that drive success: DDT (depth, duration & timing) of site hydrology and the landscape position. Through both classroom lessons and field training at a constructed wetland complex, you’ll learn "real world" applications, including: • 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 • Hydrographs: Create useable hydrographs for presentation of your wetland design • And much more!
