Engineered log jam (ELJ) technology offers an important tool for restoring fluvial ecosystems and solving traditional river management problems such as bank protection, debris retention, and grade control. This class will provide an overview of the principles, potential applications, and limitations of ELJ technology; spending approximately half the time in the field examining both natural and engineered log jams. The class will begin with a description of the characteristics and processes of natural wood accumulation and end with examples of how ELJ structures have performed, and an overview of design elements and costs.
Tuition: Early bird $1,995 before July 1, 2008, $2,250 thereafter
