EPA and Army Corps of Engineers Propose New WOTUS Definition

The US EPA has released a proposed rule redefining Water of the US (WOTUS) that would, among other things, remove intermittent and ephemeral headwater streams and non-adjacent wetlands from protection under the Clean Water Act, a change from protection

Making Waves Ep. 36: Fresh Ideas for Teaching Freshwater Science Part 4.

This month, we're releasing a four-part series on tips and tricks for teaching in the freshwater sciences from educators at different institutions. This fourth and final episode in the series features Dr. Michael Bogan, an assistant professor at the University of Arizona.

Dr. Bogan’s research focuses on understanding how disturbance and dispersal shape aquatic biodiversity patterns, and he was recently awarded the Bart Cardon Early Career Faculty Teaching Award from the University of Arizona. On the podcast, he shares an activity he uses on the first day of class to teach about stream orders and to introduce students to being in a class with active learning.

Making Waves Ep. 35: Fresh Ideas for Teaching Freshwater Science Part 3.

This month, we're releasing a four-part series on tips and tricks for teaching in the freshwater sciences from educators at different institutions. This third episode in the series features Dr. Cayelan Carey, an assistant professor at Virginia Tech, and Dr. Kait Farrell, a post-doc at Virginia Tech.

Dr. Carey’s research focuses on freshwater community and ecosystem ecology, and Dr. Farrell’s research focuses on linking freshwater ecosystem structure and function. On the podcast they discuss Project EDDIE and Macrosystems EDDIE, two suites of teaching modules they developed that use long-term and high-frequency datasets to teach students modeling and coding skills through the lens of limnology.

Making Waves Ep. 34: Fresh Ideas for Teaching Freshwater Science Part 2.

This month, we're releasing a four-part series on tips and tricks for teaching in the freshwater sciences from educators at different institutions. This second episode in the series features Dr. Amy Burgin, an associate professor at the University of Kansas and an associate scientist with the Kansas Biological Survey.

Dr. Burgin’s research focuses on aquatic microbiology, biogeochemistry and ecosystem ecology. On the podcast, she shares how she brings in freshwater science in the news to her introductory and upper level ecology classes to engage students who are interested in policy and how science connects to real-world issues.
