Title: Ground water differences on pine and hardwood forests of the Udell Experimental Forest in Michigan.

Author: Urie, Dean H.;

Date: 1977

Source: Research Paper NC-145. St. Paul, MN: U.S. Dept. of Agriculture, Forest Service, North Central Forest Experiment Station

Publication Series: Research Paper (RP)

Description: Ground water recharge under hardwood and pine forests was measured from 1962 to 1971 on the Udell Experimental Forest in Michigan. Hardwood forests produced more net ground water than pine forests by an average of 50 and 100 mm/year, using two methods of analysis. Shallow water-table lands yield 80 to 100 mm/year less water than deep, well-drained sands. Water yield decreased the most between drainage classification of pine plantation.

Keywords: forest influences, water budgets, evapotranspiration
