Stream Morphology

This presentation was recorded during the 2009 Ohio Watershed Academy. Dan Mecklenberg, Ecological Engineer with the Ohio Department of Natural Resources Division of Soil and Water Resources explains the basic concepts of stream morphology (short for geomorphology), how it relates to stream services, and why stream morphology should be considered a critical component of any watershed action plan.
