A PhD student who will use a before-after-control-impact (BACI) study design to compare and contrast responses on stream reaches where BDAs are installed vs. streams without BDAs to (1) determine how BDAs modify water storage and characteristics (e.g., flow, temperature) and (2) determine how aquatic communities respond to installation of replicated BDAs in several study areas.
