Title: Soil moisture depletion in three lodgepole pine stands in northeastern Oregon.
Author: Bishop, Daniel M.;

Publication Series: Miscellaneous Publication
Description: A 1-year study in the Blue Mountains of northeastern Oregon indicates that substantial amounts of soil moisture are consumed during the growing season in lodgepole pine stands. Dual purposes of the study were to estimate the quantities of water that can be stored in basalt-pumice soils typical of the Blue Mountains, and to determine the rate and amount of moisture depletion during the summer growing season. These are the first steps of an investigation to learn if cutting dense lodgepole stands will influence the amount of water available for streamflow.
