DescriptionOur purpose is to examine in detail the influence of the present-day forest on flood runoff and sedimentation. Forests and flood discharge wiI1 be our dominant concern; sedimentation by and large is a byproduct of their interaction. This paper was prepared for foresters, conservationists, and others acquainted with the processes and terminology of the hydrologic cycle. It is by no means an exhaustive review of the literature; rather, we describe relationships and introduce concepts that, with minimal reference, seem to us convincingly demonstrated.
