DescriptionWatershed ecosystem analysis provides a scientific approach to quantify and integrate resource responses to management (Hornbeck and Swank 1992) and also to address issues of resource sustainability (Christensen et. al. 1996). Philosophical components of the research approach at Coweeta are 1) the quantity, timing, and quality of streamflow provides an integrated measure of the successes or failure of land management practices and 2) response to disturbance provides a valuable tool for interpreting ecosystem behavior (Swank and Crossley 1988). Our objectives in this chapter are 1) to summarize and evaluate the long-term hydrologic and water quality responses to a forest management disturbance and 2) to link stream responses with process level research conducted within the watershed.
