Title: Sediment production from forest roads with wheel ruts

Author: Foltz, Randy B.; Burroughs, Edward R.

Date: 1990

Source: In: Riggins, Robert E.; Jones, E. Bruce; Singh, Ranvir; Rechard, Paul A., eds. Watershed planning and analysis in action: proceedings of the symposium, Durango, Colorado, July 9-11, 1990. New York: American Society of Civil Engineers: 266-275

Publication Series: Miscellaneous Publication

Description: Artificial rainfall was applied to two sets of paired plots 30.5 m long by 1.52 m wide, each set on a different soil type. One plot in each set contained a wheel rut while the other did not. Measurements of water and sediment yield on rutted plots showed sediment production declined with cumulative runoff while unrutted plots did not show a significant sediment depletion. This difference was a result of concentrated flow versus sheet flow.

Keywords: sediment, forest roads
