After "identify," comes "compare and contrast" in the scientific method.

What scientific method are you using?

Jack's Scientific Method.


1. Formulate question.

Who chooses the words for the question? The formulator, I would surmise*.

2. Form hypothesis.

In other words, depart from reality and surmise**. Or, postulate a reality and try to support it by observations.

*Definition of SURMISE

: a thought or idea based on scanty evidence

"He was despised and rejected by mankind, a man of suffering, and familiar with pain. Like one from whom people hide their faces he was despised, and we held him in low esteem. Surely he took up our pain and bore our suffering."

Here is the description from the back of the book.

"An easy to understand and concise overview of the nature of flowing water, the development of stream valleys and more, emphasizing those elements of special interest to the angler. This book is written for the serious angler, who wishes to learn more about the true nature of running water. You spend a lot of time wading in it or floating on it. And being there has always been more than just fishing. It is about being one with the world around us. We should learn more about that world each trip we take. What you read here will not only enhance your love of flowing water, it might even make you a better and more complete angler."

Here is the description of the author.

"Geologist Robert A. Miller was born and raised in Tennessee, where he received degrees in geology from Vanderbilt University. He served as chief of the environmental geology section of the Tennessee Geology Survey, and later returned to his Alma Mater as a lecturer in environmental geology and geomorphology. A geologist and environmental activist, he has authored a number of works on fishing history, most recently The History of the Pflueger Supreme Fishing Reel."

The book goes into detail about the geology and geomorphology of flowing streams. It talks about how and where streams originate. It goes into the hydraulics of flowing water. When it comes to geology, the book talks about how stream valleys are formed, and why different types of valleys look the way they do. it also discusses how man made features such as dams and levies effect streams. It does briefly discuss how stream damage can be corrected and mitigated.

The only truth about running water is that it seeks the lowest and will often take the fastest route to the lowest point during floods, when the stream is NOT connected to the flood plain.
Many of the things we call stream improvements fail because the streams we seek to improve are not connected to the flood plain.
