Design and Construction of the Cable-Stayed Wooden Space Truss Roof
The thinning must be enforced for healthy development of an artificial forest. The most effective use of thinning lumber is construct of the space truss structure. This election systems...

Public Involvement and Participation: Planning Imperatives for the Coming Century
The literature has identified three types of responses to natural resources planning and management efforts in the United States. The first focused upon the more effective use of existing...

A Mechanism of Pool Formation and Maintenance in Forest Streams
Laboratory and field investigations illustrate a hydraulic mechanism responsible for the formation and maintenance of pools associated with large, in-channel obstructions in forest streams....

The Flood Threat Response in South Louisiana
The flood threat to the people of Louisiana is ever present. Responses to reducing the flood threat have been relocation, structural and regulatory. All of these responses effect the surrounding...

Institutional Prospects in Managing Coastal Environmental Conservation Units in Paraná State, Brazil

Minimum Streamflow for Habitat—A Case Study. Menikganga River Diversion Project—Sri Lanka
Determination of minimum streamflows to be left in the stream channel for the sustenance of the downstream habitats becomes a difficult task when quantitative requirements of such habitats...

Small Stream Classification—A Process Based Approach

Environmental Impact Assessment and the Conservation of Marine Biological Diversity
Legislation is pending to include assessment of biodiversity in the Environmental Impact Statement process and revise the National Environmental Policy Act to better address the conservation...

The Tidewater Ecobotanical Garden: Lessons in Preserving, Restoring, and Interpreting Forested Coastal Wetlands
The West Neck Creek and North Landing River systems of the City of Virginia Beach are representative examples of the northern coastal margin of the Mid-Atlantic Tidewater. A 580 acre municipally-owned...

Predicting Effects of Modifying Tussock Grassland
Measurements of rainfall, drainage, and weight change of a 6 m2 surface area cylindrical lysimeter containing nine snow tussocks (Chionochloa rigida)...

Effects of Fine Sediment Intrusion on Spawning Gravel in Southeast Alaska
The supply of sediment to forest streams in Southeastern Alaska is related to the inherent instabilities of landforms, stream channels and the effects of logging practices. Debris avalanches,...

Hydraulic Roughness and Sediment Yield in Wheel Ruts on Forest Roads
Clear water flow and sediment yield from simulated wheel ruts in a forest road were measured at five different sites in the Northern Rocky Mountains. These measurements provided information...

Dissolved Oxygen and Woody Debris: Detecting Sensitive Forest Streams
Early watershed studies showed that timber harvesting and yarding could depress dissolved oxygen in nearby streams when fresh slash entered streams and streamside shade was reduced. State...

Alternative Wall and Reinforced Fill Experiences on Forest Roads

A Comparison of Runoff and Sediment Yields from Bare and Vegetated Plots Using Rainfall Simulation
Data from 108 small plot rainfall simulator experiments on pinyon-juniper woodlands in Arizona and New Mexico were analyzed to determine quantifiable effects of cover on hydrologic and...

Sediment Production from Forest Roads with Wheel Ruts
Artificial rainfall was applied to two sets of paired plots 30.5 m long by 1.52 m wide, each set on a different soil type. One plot in each set contained a wheel rut while the other did...
