Abstract

Since 2004, the Valles Caldera National Preserve (VCNP) in the Jemez Mountains of northern New Mexico has hosted extensive field hydrology research by scientists from the Center for Sustainability of semi- Arid Hydrology and Riparian Areas (SAHRA) at the University of Arizona. With the development of a detailed hydrologic understanding of VCNP's climate, geology, soils, vegetation, and hydrology, preserve managers have begun to incorporate research results into their management planning for rangelands, forests, and watersheds, including specific programs such as livestock grazing and management of fisheries and wildlife populations.
