Description: Streamflow in a rain-dominated, 473-ha watershed bearing second-growth redwood forest was monitored at 13 locations before and after 50% of the watershed was logged, primarily by clearcutting. Three gauged subwatersheds were maintained as unlogged controls through-out the 11-year study period. The analysis included 526 observations of peak flow from 59 storm events.
