    Description

    The sustainability of aquatic and riparian ecological systems is strongly tied to the dynamics of the streamflow regime. Timber harvest can influence the flow regime by increasing total flow, altering peak discharge rate, and changing the duration of flows of differing frequency of occurrence. These changes in the energy and sediment transporting capability of the fluvial system can cause an alteration in both channel morphology and aquatic habitat. Depending on practices used, timber harvest can increase the rate of sediment introduction to the channel system, thus further confounding the energy/transport relationship.
