DescriptionA cumulative watershed effect (CWE) is any response to multiple land-use activities that is caused by, or results in, altered watershed function. The CWE issue is politically defined, as is the significance of particular impacts. But the processes generating CWEs are the traditional focus of geomorphology and ecology, and have thus been studied for decades. The CWE issue is complicated by the variety of land-use activities which cause impacts, and by the multitude of philosophical and economic values impacted.
