Title: Water quality and streamflow in the Caribou-Poker Creeks Research Watershed, central Alaska, 1979.

Author: Hilgert, Jerry W.; Slaughter, Charles W.;

Date: 1987

Source: Res. Note PNW-RN-463. Portland, OR: U.S. Department of Agriculture, Forest Service, Pacific Northwest Research Station. 36 p

Publication Series: Research Note (RN)

Description: Baseline data from 1979 are presented on precipitation, streamflow, occurrence of permafrost, and physical and chemical water quality in a subarctic, tiaga watershed. First- to third-order streams drain catchments embracing permafrost-underlain and permafrost-free landscapes in the undisturbed research watershed. The data are compared to those from a fourth-order stream impacted by placer mining; streams in the research watershed drain into the fourth-order stream slightly beyond the watershed border. These and subsequent baseline data sets will be used to compare natural conditions in undisturbed streams of the subarctic to conditions in streams impacted by resource management activities and to evaluate the impacts of such activities on stream ecosystems.

Keywords: Baseline data, water quality, streamflow, subarctic environment, Alaska (Caribou-Poker Creeks research watershed)
