The South Fork (562 acres) and North Fork (467 acres) of Thomas Creek range
from 8,400 to 9,300 ft in elevation. The watersheds support dense
mixed conifer stands that are similar in composition and structure
to those on Willow Creek.
Vegetation on most of the watersheds was classified as Picea
engelmannii/Senecio cardamine habitat type. Annual precipitation
averaged 30 inches. Annual runoff from South Fork averaged 3 inches
from both South Fork and North Fork.
Treatments and Practices - how
the study was conducted and treatments used, and management practices
used and results for each, with photos and maps of the areas within
Data Collected - this is a new section we're working
on that will soon provide access to data on precipitation, streamflow,
sediment loads, and other data that were collected on the Thomas
Creek Watershed over the period from 1957 to about 1983.
Documentation for the data - what measurements were recorded,
how to interpret it, the years covered, etc.
Data - select the watersheds, time period, etc. then view
and download the results
Images - available in the image database illustrating various aspects
and conditions found in watersheds in the southwestern United
States. These can be accessed after getting into the database
by using the key word thomas creek.
