Integrated Watersheds

Watersheds are spatially organized, scale-dependent landscape units, and therefore represent ideal frameworks for the integrated study of hydrology, ecology, geomorphology, and the various ways in which humans have altered watershed processes. Researchers collaborate on multidisciplinary investigations of hydrology, ecology, and geomorphology of and human impacts on watersheds.

The Integrated Watershed Working Group is the primary force behind ESI’s Integrated Watershed Initiative.
