Webinar: Importance of a Stream’s Habitat Condition and How to Measure It

Join the Office of Information Management and Analysis from your own workspace on June 24, 2010 for a 1-hour webinar on The Importance of a Stream’s Physical Habitat Condition and How to Measure It
presented by James Harrington, Staff Environmental Scientist in Department of Fish and Game (DFG Water Pollution Control Laboratory)

Healthy streams and rivers have complex habitats and physical dimensions that favor a thriving and diverse plant and animal community. The SWAMP physical habitat procedures attempt to measure the physical state of wadeable streams and the human stressors that might alter those measurements. In this webinar, Jim will describe all the physical habitat features that are measured using the SWAMP Bioassessment SOP and how that data is used in assessment reports.  He will also discuss how those measures might be used in the future to produce an Index of Physical Condition..

Webinars are just like a conference room based seminar; however, participants view the presentation through their Web-browser (Internet Explorer) and listen to the audio through their telephone or online computer. A key feature of a Webinar is its interactive elements — the ability to give, receive, and discuss information between the presenter and the audience.
