Resource Management and Use2014SRS
Photo of Land use change is particularly influential in a mixed land use watershed, which is especially important for identifying areas where hydrologic responses are most sensitive to land use change. Even a moderate amount of conversion of forest to developed use in a mixed use watershed had a large effect on streamflow dynamics.
