PurposeDetermine sediment sources (upland vs channel) in the Kittleson (907900) and Pleasant Valley (908500) catchments and how application of the buffer initiative concepts will affect stream valley form.
ObjectiveComplete analysis needed to determine sediment sources
Monitor stream valley form that result from intensive land mangagemet practices.
OutcomeUSGS report identifying sediment sources with recommendations on practices to be targeted to reduce sediment loads.
We will also gain empirical data that will link our biological and habitat measurements with long-term physical measurements.
