The emergence of reliable field deployable sensors capable of water quality measurements at temporal resolutions commensurate with hydroclimatic and ecological drivers enables a new class of environmental measurements and inferences. This course is intended for students, post-doctoral researchers and junior faculty; all researchers interested in exploring these emerging opportunities are welcome.

The objective of this course is to provide guidance and support for deployment of a wide variety of off-the-shelf in-situ water quality sensors, and quality assurance and interpretation of the resulting data. While the course will explore a broad array of sensor-derived measurements and applications, our particular focus for this workshop will be on the collection and interpretation of Lagrangian measurements (i.e., following a parcel of water as it moves).

Prerequisites/Requirements:

  • Participants must bring a laptop with the Microsoft Office Suite installed - minimally Excel.

  • Participants must be aware of the field components of this workshop. There will be lectures and data collection in the field. [Students will collect water data from kayaks.]

    • Please bring the following:

      • Muck boots or river wading shoes

      • Broken-in, waterproof hiking boots

      • Rain gear

      • Day pack

      • Field clothes (pants, shirt, etc.)

      • Water bottle

      • Field notebook, pencils, pens, paper, etc.

      • Sunscreen, sunglasses, and sunhat
