Description: For the past three decades, researchers from the Pacific Southwest Research Station's Redwood Sciences Laboratory in Arcata, California, and the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection (CDF), Jackson Demonstration Forest near Fort Bragg, have been studying the effects of logging northern California watersheds. The findings have identified the extent and nature of hydrologic, erosion, and sedimentation impacts of logging operations on watersheds in this area. Cooperation between CDF and the Station dates from 1962. It has been a productive division of labors, with CDF supervising the construction and maintenance of research facilities and the logging of experimental watersheds, and the Station designing the experiments and analyzing the data. Together, they have jointly decided which studies to undertake and have co-authored several research reports.
