Riparian ecosystems of the Salmon-Challis National Forest: An assessment of current conditions in relation to the natural range of variability

Publications Posted on: July 16, 2019
This assessment was conducted to provide information on the current conditions of riparian, wetland, and groundwater-dependent ecosystems in reference to their natural range of variation on the Salmon-Challis National Forest during forest plan revision.

Riparian, wetland, and groundwater-dependent ecosystems: Assessments of current conditions in relation to natural range of variation for National Forests in the Intermountain Region (R4)

Projects Posted on: June 18, 2019
The researchers are completing a series of riparian and groundwater-dependent ecosystem assessments for National Forests in the USFS Intermountain Region. Each assessment summarizes drivers, stressors, and current condition of these systems in relation to the natural range of variation within each forest. The reports directly inform the assessment phase of forest plan revision and continue to be produced on a schedule in line with the Region’s forest planning process.

Riparian ecosystems of the Manti-La Sal National Forest: An assessment of current conditions in relation to natural range of variability

Publications Posted on: March 25, 2019
We conducted this assessment to provide information on the current conditions of riparian and wetland ecosystems in reference to their natural range of variability on the Manti-La Sal National Forest during forest plan revision.

Fluvial processes in Puget Sound rivers and the Pacific Northwest [Chapter 3]

Publications Posted on: August 01, 2018
The variability of topography, geology, climate; vegetation, and land use in the Pacific Northwest creates considerable spatial and temporal variability of fluvial processes and reach-scale channel type. Here we identify process domains of typical Pacific Northwest watersheds and examine local physiographic and geologic controls on channel processes and response potential in the Puget Sound region.

Fish habitat conditions: using the Northern/Intermountain Regions' inventory procedures for detecting differences on two differently managed watersheds

Publications Posted on: May 12, 2016
Differences in fish habitat variables between two studied watersheds may be related to differences in land management. In using the R1/R4 Watershed-Scale Fish Habitat Inventory Process, for most habitat variables, evaluations of sample sizes of at least 30 habitat units were adequate.

Geomorphic classification of rivers

Documents and Media Posted on: January 23, 2015
Over the last several decades, environmental legislation and a growing awareness of historical human disturbance to rivers worldwide have fostered unprecedented collaboration among scientists, land managers, and stakeholders to better understand, monitor, and restore riverine ecosystems.Document Type: Briefing Papers

Changes in channel morphology over human time scales

Documents and Media Posted on: December 04, 2014
Rivers are exposed to changing environmental conditions over multiple spatial and temporal scales, with the imposed environmental conditions and response potential of the river modulated to varying degrees by human activity and our exploitation of natural resources.Document Type: Briefing Papers

Changes in channel morphology over human time scales [Chapter 32]

Publications Posted on: March 08, 2012
Rivers are exposed to changing environmental conditions over multiple spatial and temporal scales, with the imposed environmental conditions and response potential of the river modulated to varying degrees by human activity and our exploitation of natural resources.
