The Watershed Geology Lab currently includes an array of modern survey and hydrology equipment for "research-grade" data collection. Field gear for student learning and research includes autolevels, rotating laser, prismless total stations, RTK GPS units, photogrammetric UAVs, Sontek acoustic dopper velocity profilers, pygmy current meters, Price AA current meters, flow probes, tapes, cross section stakes, Helley-Smith bedload samplers, DH-48 suspended load samplers, bedload sieves and shaker, and USGS modified Parshall flume. The lab is equipped to run suspended sediment samples with a drying oven, freezer, vacuum, gas, glassware, petrographic microscope, precision balances, and three computers for laboratory and field data analysis and geospatial visualization through photogrammetry (agisoft photoscanner), 2D and 3D mapping.
