Pacific Southwest Research Station
Tahoe Science Projects supported by SNPLMA
Stream Corridor Modeling Tools
Stream restoration projects are being implemented at numerous sites in the Tahoe basin, but limited analysis and monitoring have been conducted to evaluate how these projects will reduce fine sediment loading owing to bank erosion. This project will produce a state-of the-art set of tools for managing Lake Tahoe streams. The project will conduct field experiments of erosion resistance of bioengineered treatments and numerical simulations of channel response.
