Assessment and permitted materials
Attendance control, oral group presentation of project outcomes, finally written group protocols at the end of the course.
Minimum requirements and assessment criteria
The participants are aware of the basic principles governing ecological integrity in running water systems. They are familiar with the most important hydrological methods and are able to handle the specific field equipment (GPS, propeller-meter, Hess sampler). They are able to measure slope and to construct 3d-models of the sampling site. In addition, students are able to perform basic limnochemical analyses in the field and to identify stream biota in the lab.
Guided field work (mapping, equipment training, data collection) at low and high impact sections of the Wien River and guided as well as unguided data analyses in the lab. Handouts are distributed at the start of the course and throughout the lab sections.
