Modelling Transpiration of Subalpine Trees in the Central Rocky Mountains
Forest evapotranspiration (ET) has long been recognized to be a major component in the mass water balance of subalpine watersheds in the central Rocky Mountains. In recent years, research...

Chaparral Watershed Management: A Systems Approach
The predicted environmental and economic effects of partial chaparral conversion for increased water yield on an experimental watershed in the Prescott National Forest, Arizona, are examined...

Predicting Forest Snow Water Equivalent
In California, the snowpack of the Sierra Nevada provides more than one-third of the state's water needs. Regression models used to forecast this supply do not include measurement...

Surface Erosion Control on Roads in Granitic Soils
The impact of forest road construction on water quality and fish habitat is a serious problem for engineers, hydrologists, and foresters. Control of surface erosion is an important and...

A Giardia Source Investigation in a National Forest Municipal Supply Watershed
For nearly 100 years, the City of Missoula, Montana, obtained most of its municipal water from a surface water supply, Rattlesnake Creek. The Rattlesnake watershed lies within the Lolo...

Prediction of Nutrient and Heavy Metal Transport Capacities of Suspended Sediment in the Southwestern United States
SEDCON, a computerized prediction technique (using forest type and geology as inputs) has been developed to estimate the impacts of land management practices on physical and chemical characteristics...

Streamflow Generation from Subalpine Forests
Much of the hydrologic modelling done in the subalpine forest of the central Rockies is based on the Subalpine Water Balance Model. This paper reports on plot studies on the Fraser Experimental...

Simulation of Airborne Snow Water Equivalent Measurement Errors Made over a Forest Environment
The Office of Hydrology of the National Weather Service has developed and maintains an operational Airborne Gamma Radiation Snow Survey Program in the upper Midwest (Peck, et al. , 1980)....

Some Econological Observations on Coastal Plant Communities, of New York and New Jersey
The present study was conducted at three coastal sites, Fire Island, New York, Fort Tilden, New York, and Sandy Hook, New Jersey. Four plant communities, the salt marsh community, sand...

Can Digital Terrain Data Cut Route Selection Time?
The use of photogrammetry in the collection of digital terrain and the use of a computer to process data is not being used to its fullest. Use of these two tools together increases access...

The Successful Cleanup of Contaminated Groundwater at Woodland Park, Michigan

Water Quality Impacts Associated with Residential Development in the Coastal Zone Areas of Atlantic County, New Jersey

Structural Lumber: An Overview of Research Needs
Structural performance of lumber is influenced by the processing steps from forest to final end-use and by the end-use environment. Research needs in processing include: 1) selection of...

Mapping Landslide Hazards in Forest Watersheds
A physically realistic methodology is presented for estimating and mapping landslide hazards for watersheds. This methodology also considers the variability of the controlling factors....

Denny Creek: The Toughest Bridge Washington State Ever Built
The story of how highway planners and engineers in Washington State's Department of Transportation were stopped from building a highway and viaduct through a pristine wilderness...

Forest Service Timber Bridge Specifications
Approximately one half of the 12,000 Forest Service road and trail bridges are constructed of wood or have wood as a major component. The number constructed each year fluctuates with the...
