Moffett Creek Capstone Project
The Moffett Creek Capstone Project (MCCP) utilized mixed methods research using both quantitative and qualitative approaches, assessing anthropogenic versus natural impacts on water quality and quantity. Data collection, data analysis and modeling will provide information that can be used to help inform potential restoration activities. The parameters that were used are groundwater and surface water levels, stream discharge, turbidity, stream channel configuration, and soil profiling. MCCP utilized the Southern Oregon University’s Environmental Science and Policy Program’s Capstone Project to demonstrate the culmination of skills, methodology, and knowledge learned in the undergraduate curriculum.
