Catalina Hydrology

Active Dates: 2017-present

Participants: Matt Becker, Ben Hagedorn, Lauren Healy;

Collaborators: Catalina Island Conservancy;

Support: County of Los Angeles, Office of the Comptroller

Although Catalina Island is only 26 miles from Long Beach, little is known about its hydrology and almost nothing about its hydrogeology. Students are installing stream gages and collecting spring chemistry data to understand the hydrology of the island and provide information for natural resource management.
