River Restoration; Fluvial-Geomorphic & Ecological Tools

June 15-19, 2015
“River Restoration; Fluvial-Geomorphic & Ecological Tools”
Provence, France

This five-day workshop emphasizes understanding geomorphic process as a sound basis for planning and designing river restoration projects and programs. The course is in English, but draws heavily on river restoration and management experiences in France and elsewhere in the EU, complemented by experiences in North America and elsewhere. Instruction includes lectures, field exercises, problem sets and workshops on approaches to planning and implementing process-based restoration. Lead instructors include Drs. Matt Kondolf, Herve Piegay, Pete Downs, and Jeff Haltiner.

This course will be a great chance to combine a love for river science with wonderful food, wine, and international connections. It will be held the week immediately prior to the IS.Rivers Conference.
