Developing Wetland Water Budgets [Online]

Developing Wetland Water Budgets


Product Description

On-demand Workshop

Establishing an accurate estimate of the anticipated water budget of a wetland is critical to a project’s success. This online workshop will present how to create a water budget for an existing or planned wetland site. We will cover important topics such as:

  • Site landform considerations
  • Weather data
  • Evaporation and Transpiration
  • The effects of groundwater on a site
  • Surface runoff
  • And a few more important tidbits

Using the data derived from the site conditions we are then able to create water budget models. We will present traditional modeling approaches as well as a new innovative computer software package that does the challenging work for you. The software is included as part of the workshop.

Each week you will participate in a discussion forum, review workshop videos, and prepare your assignment portfolio.

The final part of the workshop is for you to create your own water budget for a wetland or planned wetland in your local community. You will create a custom wetland water budget that our team of experts will review and suggest modifications that may improve the overall design.
