EVSC 211 Rivers and Watersheds: Form and Function

This course examines the role of rivers in the landscape within the context of their watersheds. Through a combination of lectures, field and lab exercises, and research projects students will explore the relationships between river hydrology, river morphology, sediment transport, and watersheds. The course will also evaluate how dams and other human disruptions can disturb the natural equilibrium in these dynamic systems. In addition to these scientific approaches, the course will also consider rivers as a focus of philosophical and artistic expression.
