Managing vegetation to increase flow in the Colorado River Basin

Publications Posted on: July 31, 2019
Water yield from forest and rangelands can be augmented by managing vegetation and snow to reduce evapotranspiration. Some arbitrary goals to increase water yield were chosen to illustrate the potential for increasing water yield, and treatments were hypothesized to get these increases.

eDNAtlas Data mapper

Lab Notes Posted on: September 06, 2018
Analyzing eDNA samples in a lab allows researchers to reliably determine where target species are found and overcomes previous limitations of traditional sampling techniques. The eDNAtlas website and dynamic database tools allow the public, managers, and researchers to access results from samples of environmental DNA (eDNA).  

Fluvial processes in Puget Sound rivers and the Pacific Northwest [Chapter 3]

Publications Posted on: August 01, 2018
The variability of topography, geology, climate; vegetation, and land use in the Pacific Northwest creates considerable spatial and temporal variability of fluvial processes and reach-scale channel type. Here we identify process domains of typical Pacific Northwest watersheds and examine local physiographic and geologic controls on channel processes and response potential in the Puget Sound region.

Ecosystems and watersheds

Pages Posted on: February 06, 2017
Ecosystems are spatially explicit, relatively homogeneous units of the Earth that include all interacting organisms and elements of the abiotic environment within their boundaries. They should be described in terms of their composition, structure, function, and connectivity. These publications and tools include valuable information for terrestrial ecosystems, aquatic ecosystems, and watersheds.

Wildland fire in ecosystems: effects of fire on soils and water

Publications Posted on: May 12, 2016
This state-of-knowledge review about the effects of fire on soils and water can assist land and fire managers with information on the physical, chemical, and biological effects of fire needed to successfully conduct ecosystem management, and effectively inform others about the role and impacts of wildland fire.
