Implementing Watershed-Based Green Infrastructure for Stormwater Management: Case Study in Blacksburg, Virginia
(Virginia Water Resources Research Center, 2009-07)
Studies of Benthic Macroinvertebrate Use for Biomonitoring of Mid-Atlantic Highland Streams
(Virginia Tech, 2002-05-10)
Research was conducted in three areas of water quality assessment. Long term ecological monitoring data from Shenandoah National Park (SNP) were analyzed and a protocol for data analysis was presented. Streams in SNP ...
Gene Flow and Dispersal Among Populations of the Stonefly Peltoperla tarteri (Plecoptera: Peltoperlidae) in the Southern Appalachians
(Virginia Tech, 2000-11-14)
Despite a number of recent studies focused on the issue, patterns of stream insect dispersal in temperate streams of North America remain poorly understood. Movement of benthic invertebrates is notoriously difficult to ...
Evaluation of Current Management Strategies for the New River, Virginia, Muskellunge Fishery: Modeling the Effect of Alternative Harvest Regulations and Habitat Selection
(Virginia Tech, 2005-04-01)
The purpose of this research was to evaluate current management strategies for the New River, Virginia, muskellunge Esox masquinongy fishery, which is the premier muskellunge fishery in the state. The primary objectives ...
The Effect of Structure and Lithology on Aspect Ratio of Fluvial Channels: A Field-Based Quantitative Study of the New River in Three Geologic Provinces
(Virginia Tech, 2008-11-17)
Fluvial channel geometry is controlled by the interaction of a number of geologic and hydraulic variables. The width of mixed alluvial-bedrock channels generally is a function of discharge, with variations due to local ...
DEVELOPING A SERVICE-LEARNING PROGRAM FOR WATERSHED MANAGEMENT: Lessons from the Stroubles Creek Watershed Initiative
(Virginia Tech, 2002-04-22)
There has been a growing interest and support by many state and local programs to address aquatic resource protection and restoration at a watershed level. The desire by many programs to implement watershed management ...
Detection probabilities and local population demographics of fishes in urbanized and forested streams of the New River basin, Virginia
(Virginia Tech, 2009-12-15)
Aquatic biodiversity continues to decline as humans modify the landscape. A population-level approach is necessary to address the mechanisms of impairment in urban stream habitats. When estimating population-level ...
An Examination of the Reference Watershed Approach for TMDLs with Benthic Impairments
(Virginia Tech, 2004-04-22)
This research addresses the Reference Watershed Approach (RWA) in the TMDL process for benthic impairments. In the RWA, do different land use sources (DOQQ and NLCD) or use of alternative water quality models (GWLF and ...
