Watersheds: Processes, Management and Impact


Gavyn L. Kuhn (Editor)
Jason R. Emery (Editor)

Series: Water Resource Planning, Development and Management, Environmental Science, Engineering and Technology

This book examines the management and impacts of watersheds on the ecosystem process. The authors present topics including the effects of thinning on material transformation in a stand of Cryptomeria japonica in a watershed in eastern Japan; natural and human influences on the inorganic water chemistry of the northern Xinjiang rivers in China; current land use within the Conecuh/Escambia River watershed in the Gulf of Mexico; factors affecting farmers’ adoption of best management practices in Ontario’s Grand River watershed; and the adaptation of national elevation dataset to estimate depression storage in a glaciated watershed.
