Time: 15 - 22 September 2022, with some additional reading in advance. Location: Vindeln, Sweden

The course addresses the foundational concepts and modern challenges within the broad field of watershed science. It takes an integrative approach that focuses on the hydrological, biogeochemical and ecological connections between upland, riparian, and aquatic components of forest landscapes. General themes in watershed science will be explored through discussions of literature that will be coordinated with short lectures. More specific questions and methodological approaches will be introduced using a series of excursions and activities within the Krycklan catchment.
