Chilko-Chilcotin-Fraser Rivers 2011

Small island in still water


This year's ecogeomorphology course studied the headwater lakes and river systems of the Chilko-Chilcotin River system in British Columbia, Canada. The course was focused on developing a conceptual model that tied important physical and biological processes together based on levels of importance and understanding. To compliment the model, eleven technical chapters provided details in disciplines ranging from tectonics and glaciers to biological nitrogen cycling. An interactive map identifies locations of field work activities, interesting islands, and campsites. And of course there are many field logs (Flogs) and photos to enlighten and entertain the casual viewer.
