Assessing Trends in Sediment Processes in Puget Sound Watershed

We hope that this workshop will support continuing and new research collaborations. Our objective is to generate a good summary of the state of knowledge as well as a list of emerging science questions and potential impacts, and the data and modeling needed to address them.

  • When: April 11, 2017 from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm
  • Location: Samuel E Kelly Ethnic Cultural Center (3931 Brooklyn Ave NE, Seattle, WA 98105)
  • Parking Information: The closest above ground parking is in lot W12 at 3940 Brooklyn Ave NE (Directions), or else the Underground Central Plaza at 4110 15th Ave NE. These both cost $15 for the day. You can get here easily by LightRail with a short walk from the University Station as well.

 

Program Overview:


In the morning work session we will be break out into four groups by watershed process domains (Upper, Mid, Delta, Integration) to focus on the State of Knowledge. The groups will report back their synthesis of the existing knowledge and emerging science questions.   In the afternoon work session, participants will self organize into breakout groups by specific science question to develop a document that synthesizes and refines Research Questions , Data Collection Needs, Modeling Needs, and Potential Impacts.
