Description : A method of stream habitat inventory using photo interpretation of large scale color infrared photography is described. The supporting methods of ground truth, targeting for aerial photographic identification and photo scale, film format exposure for water penetration of clear water, lens filers, and description of acceptable weather and sunlight conditions for optimum film exposure are identified.

Description : Decades, or even centuries, of changing and competing land uses have left many of the world's streams degraded, in poor health, and out of balance with the ever-shifting dynamics of their watersheds. This is a basic resource intended to help individuals, groups, organizations, companies, communities, and governments plan and carry out environmentally sound, cost-effective stream corridor assessment, enhancement, and stewardship programs. Using the watershed as the basic unit of reference, the Handbook provides ideas and information with which readers can assess and document local stream conditions, learn about and evaluate methods of enhancement, devise and implement enhancement plans, and then maintain the stream and stream corridor in its enhanced state of better health and balance. While not a comprehensive technical manual for professionals trained in stream restoration, this resource does provide a solid foundation by which volunteers may become informed observers, advocates, and organizers of stream enhancement programs and participants in their implementation.

Description : ...The purposes of this report are to describe (1) the hydrologic characteristics of the Quashnet River stream aquifer system and (2) the responses of the system to proposed ground water withdrawals simulated by use of a numerical model of ground water flow; these reponses to pumping are assessed in terms of drawdowns in the altitude of the water table, streamflow depletions, and sources of water to the river and the simulated supply well; in this report, the Quashnet river stream aquifer system is defined as that area extending approximately from the Mashpee River on the east to the Coonamessett River on the west and from Nantucket Sound to approximately 1 mile north of Johns Pond; this report is based on ground and surface water data collected during the study and compiled from engineers' reports and USGS ground and surface water data bases; physical characteristics of the Quashnet and Childs Rivers (streamflow, stream velocity, width and depth), surface altitude of Johns Pond, and hydraulic heads within the basin were measured from January 1990 through September 1991...

Description : A number of studies were undertaken related to effects of clearcut logging on water quality and the process affected in small streams. Water temperature studied before and after logging was increased significantly where stream cover was removed. Energy balances of small streams were measured and predictive models were developed. Road building significantly increased sediment yield in clearcut and patch cut watersheds. Logging itself was not an important sediment contributor. Methods for sampling bed load and suspended sediment were developed. Bed load constituted 70 percent of suspended load during peak discharges.

Description : As our understanding of the importance of large woody debris (LWD) evolves, planning for its production in riparian forest management is becoming more widely recognized. This report details the development of a model (CWD, version 1.4) that predicts LWD inputs, including descriptions of the field sampling used to parameterize parts of the model, the theoretical and practical underpinnings of the model's structure, and a case study of CWD's application to a stream in Wyoming's Bridger-Teton National Forest.
