Details/Description

Calculation of the amount, depth, duration, and timing of water anticipated in a constructed wetland is an essential element for preparing functional wetland designs. Build upon your wetland construction knowledge with this course, as it provides you with specific directions for preparing and comparing hydrographs for wetland construction projects. The single biggest mistake in botched wetland construction projects is failure to understand the amount and seasonal distribution of water over time. Learn about depth, duration and timing of water, and how to calculate and anticipate hydrologic patterns before your wetland is constructed!
