Water quality science and engineering practices are based on measurement data and geospatial information systems and analysis. Water resources management, itself, depends on data, models, analysis of results and optimization of known or estimated system parameters. Understanding watersheds, and specifically the Raritan River watershed, requires integration of field observations, data, models, and critical evaluations of the combined field and modeled results. This seminar series introduces research methods used routinely in water resources practice and applies them to challenges concerning water quantity and quality using the Raritan River as the study location. The three field trips and seven lectures comprise this Byrne Seminar series providing examples of what water resources engineers and managers experience and the challenges they face.
