    Description

    The Caspar Creek Experimental Watershed was set up as a traditional paired watershed to investigate the effects of logging and road construction on erosion and sedimentation. Research participants have come from the California Division of Forestry, the Pacific Southwest Forest and Range Experiment Station, the California Department of Water Resources, the California Division of Mines and Geology, the California Department of Fish and Game, and Humboldt State University. The primary objectives of the project are to measure the sediment produced by a North Coastal watershed in an undisturbed condition and to measure the degree to which water quality, flood peaks, suspended sediment, and bedload are affected by road construction and logging when practices are designed to minimize excessive runoff and erosion.
