The River Morphology & Applications course trains students to conduct a geomorphic characterization and delineate stream types using the stream classification method as published in Applied River Morphology (Rosgen, 1996). A combination of lecture and field sessions provides practical experience in the following subjects and activities:
Integrating fluvial geomorphology concepts with problem-solving techniques
Learning and mapping fluvial landscapes and valley types
Pre-mapping landscapes and stream types on aerial photos and topographic maps
Field validation of the bankfull stage at a USGS gage station
Regional curve development
Field methods to properly measure morphological variables and develop dimensionless ratios for assessment and design
Stream succession and the central tendency of rivers
Reference reach selection and applications
Management applications using stream types
