In this webinar on hydrologic recovery in coastal watersheds, Glynnis Horel, P.Eng. will cover two main topics. First, Glynnis will review the climate and stream flow of coastal watersheds, discussing typical hydrographs, peak flow occurrence by month, and recent storm trends. Second, she will discuss hydrologic recovery methods for a variety of coastal watersheds (e.g. rain, rain-on-snow, snowpack zones), discussing what to consider when selecting which curves to apply, how to choose parameters for the recovery curves, and sources of uncertainty, both in determining hydrologic recovery and in interpreting results for stream flow change.


Glynnis Horel, P.Eng.

Glynnis has 45 years of experience as a geological engineer in terrain evaluation, slope stability and landslide assessments, watershed assessments, earthworks construction, and road maintenance, reconstruction and deactivation. She has worked in the coastal forest sector in B.C. for 27 years. She has completed watershed assessments on over two million hectares of forest land on Vancouver Island, the coastal mainland and Haida Gwaii. Glynnis is both a Technical and General Reviewer for Engineers and Geoscientists BC practice reviews and has participated in the development of five sets of professional practice guidelines.
