    Description

    In forested watersheds, changes in climate and forest structure or age can affect water yield; yet few long-term observational records from such watersheds exist that allow an assessment of these impacts over time. In this study, we used long-term (~80 yrs) observational records of climate and water yield in six reference watersheds at the Coweeta Hydrologic Laboratory in the southern Appalachian mountains of North Carolina to determine whether water yield has changed over time, and examine and attribute the causal mechanisms of change.
