Meeting Presentations, Notes and Agendas

An archive of all meeting agendas, notes and presentations. Presentations provide guidance on using online tools (database and Interactive Catchment Explorer), choosing sites to improve model predictions, and how to use our protocols. Some presentations also inform about additional modeling tools and monitoring efforts.

May 2020: Logger Placement. . .How do Lakes/Deadwaters Geomorphic features and Groundwater influence your data collection?

A presentation on multiple factors that can influence temperature data in streams, sampling considerations in lotic systems with lakes and deadwaters, and how to avoid (or locate) groundwater inputs. By Scott Craig, USFWS - data gathered on the Narraguagus River in downeast Maine.

December 2019: SHEDS Applications Beyond New England

This presentation by Dr Jeffrey Walker (USGS, UMass-Amherst) explores the capabilities of Interactive Catchment Explorer spatial applications beyond New England. Current projects include tracking movements of PIT-tagged fish, evaluating ecological benefits of culvert and dam improvements, assessing vulnerability of endangered fish, and a streamflow alteration study. The presentation contains links to each interactive tool.
