Monitoring: Precipitation or Air Quality in Unmanaged Forests

# 75 Long -Term Monitoring of Precipitation Chemistry
  • Objective:
    • Substudy 1: To identify factors affecting precipitation pH.
    • Substudy 2:
      A) To determine the effects of a dense road network on stream chemistry from a 150-acre watershed.
    • B) To determine the effects of a dense road network plus an intensive harvest operation on stream chemistry.

      C) To determine changes in watershed hydrology including annual water yield, peakflow rates, and stormflow volumes.

    • Substudy 3: To determine changes in soil chemistry, soil leachate chemistry, and streamflow chemistry resulting from increased application of nitrogen and sulfer.
    • Substudy 4: To investigate changes in selected chemical properties of water as it passes through the land phase of the hydrologic cycle and to determine the dynamic changes in stream water quality during storm events.
  • Objective:
    To continually measure ambient air quality in forested areas of West Virginia based upon parameters measured by the National Dry Deposition Network.
  • Objective:
    This is a part of cooperative research program evaluating "best management practices", atmospheric deposition impacts on water quality, hydrologic response, nutrient cycling, and water yields from forested and managed watersheds.
  • Objective:
    To continually monitor forest hydrology parameters at the Hubbard Brook Experimental Forest.
