Working With Natural Processes: Site visit with in situ field measurements

JBA Working with Natural Processes training course

WWNP is best understood in real-world context, and relation to how a whole catchment functions. We will visit a WWNP scheme in your area and take a hands-on look at monitoring and measurement techniques from soil transmissivity to dilution gauging and pair-plot experiments. Understanding the long-term performance can provide improved knowledge transfer, engagement and promote a better awareness of risk and residual risk.
