12:00 p.m. – 1:15 p.m.- WRRC Brown Bag Seminar/Webinar – Camo, Hose Clamps, and Pixels:  Arizona’s Approach for Low-cost Intermittent Stream Monitoring Time/Location:   / WRRC Sol Resnick Conference Room (350 N. Campbell Ave.) Tucson.  Speaker:  Meghan Smart, Environmental Scientist, ADEQ If a picture is words 1,000 words, why not extrapolate from digital pixels and use it as a low cost, continuous, and unambiguous method to study intermittent streams?  Arizona’s 6,000 miles of intermittent streams are understudied because they are logistically difficult to sample and because perennial streams are historically thought of as ‘more important’. The Arizona Department of Environmental Quality (ADEQ) developed an intermittent stream program using time-lapse photography and a probabilistic approach to fill the large data gap.
