Environmental Flow Research in the Tennessee River Basin
The objective of this project is to improve understanding of how alteration of streamflow characteristics affects the ecological health of rivers and streams in Tennessee. Initial efforts are aimed at identifying critical streamflow characteristics and providing a set of statistical tools and analytical approaches for the prediction of these characteristics. Application of these tools will enhance understanding of how hydrologic alteration may change fish community structure in the Tennessee River basin.
