Title: An analysis of stream channel cross section technique as a means to determine anthropogenic change in second order streams at the Tenderfoot Creek Experimental Forest, Meagher County, Montana

Author: Boice, Jeff;

Date: 1999

Source: Report RJVA-98541. Bozeman, MT: U.S. Department of Agriculture, Forest Service, Rocky Mountain Research Station. 37 p.

Publication Series: Miscellaneous

Description: Five second order tributaries to Tenderfoot Creek were investigated: Upper Tenderfoot Creek, Sun Creek, Spring Park Creek, Bubbling Creek, and Stringer Creek. Second order reaches were initially located on 7.5 minute topographic maps using techniques first applied by Strahler (1952). Reach breaks were determined in the field through visual inspection. Vegetation type (forested vs. non forested), channel slope, sinuosity, entrenchment ratio, and channel materials were used in the classification of stream reaches, using channel classification techniques developed by Rosgen (1995).

Keywords: stream channel cross section technique, second order streams, Tenderfoot Creek Experimental Forest
