Sediment delivery and routing are important watershed management issues in the USDA-Forest Service. The relationship between forest management activities and stream morphology, resident and anadromous fish habitat, and water quality on a basin-wide scale pose challenging questions. Application models have been developed and applied, and Forest Service Research continues to examine these tools for verification, adaptation, and improvement. A priority research program on cumulative watershed impacts of forest management is being implemented.
