Title: Hillslope hydrology research at Caspar Creek

Author: Keppeler, Elizabeth T.; Cafferata, Peter H.;

Date: 1991

Source: Jackson Demonstration State Forest Newsletter, No. 41, April 1991. p. 4-8.

Publication Series: Miscellaneous Publication

Description: As part of the ongoing Caspar Creek Watershed Study on Jackson Demonstration State Forest, researchers from the US Forest Service and the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection are investigating subsurface drainage in the headwaters of the basin. In order to predict how land use practices will impact stream systems, and hence habitats for aquatic organisms, we must develop an understanding of how water and sediment move down to the channel system. Subsurface flows are the primary source of stormflow in this region, where hillslopes are often prone to land slides.

Keywords: PSW4351, Caspar Creek, subsurface drainage, stream, hillslope hydrology, stormflow
