1) Calculate stream flow at a given point (V x A = Q), evaluate three candidate sites for gaging suitability.
2) Describe river morphology and it's relation to eddies, hydraulics, standing waves, etc. Discuss with respect to whitewater park design.
3) Compare the mean timing of peak runoff from a 20-year period over 50 years ago with the timing of the last 20 years and evaluate whether a change exists and discuss implications relevant to climate change.
4) Compare the timing of a stream stage pulse from a dam release with the velocity of the water actually moving downstream.
Count could've come up with a much more extensive list...
Nothing in the world is more yielding and gentle than water. Yet it has no equal for conquering the resistant and tough. The flexible can overcome the unbending; the soft can overcome the hard. - Lao Tse
