DescriptionPurpose of this presentation is to put channel monitoring in context of channel processes and dispel the myth of the learned sage walking up the stream channel observing changes in the channel and extrapolating how these changes came about without looking at the rest of the watershed. The message I want to convey is it is not only O.K.to peek at the rest of the watershed, but it is necessary to understand why change has occurred. Many of the other speakers over the next two days will probably reiterate this same point, again and again.
