Document Type: Journal Paper
Abstract: Hydrologic studies on small brush-covered watersheds in California show that increases in runoff can result from replacement of brush by grass; water yield increases of as much as 10 in. have been measured under favorable conditions without serious acceleration of soil erosion; factors in precipitation disposal discussed in relation to influence of watershed vegetation on runoff.
