This week-long short course presents a unique opportunity for students and post-docs to explore watershed hydrology and biogeochemistry both conceptually and empirically with hands-on use of the newly commissioned Landscape Evolution Observatory (LEO) facility. Differing perspectives on watershed science theory, experimental design, and modeling will be provided by four leading scientists in the field.
Biosphere 2. Students will have the opportunity to run an experiment with LEO and to analyze data from this facility. The next topic is the use of multiple tracers in design of watershed studies and for developing a more comprehensive understanding of multiple and interacting watershed processes. Finally, integrated catchment modeling will be presented as a means to synthesize data and to test quantitative hypotheses of catchment processes.
