Description: Abstract - The old-growth redwood forest of North Fork Caspar Creek was clear-cut between 1864 and 1904. Previous research on logging-related changes in suspended sediment and streamflow would suggest that North Fork Caspar Creek has recovered from historical logging (Rice et al., 1979; Ziemer, 1981); research on the influence of large woody debris (LWD) on channel form and function would suggest it has not (Sedell and Luchessa, 1982; Keller and Tally, 1979). I developed a sediment budget for mainstem North Fork Caspar Creek for water years (WY) 1980-1988 to evaluate controls on sediment storage changes. Sediment budget findings, Caspar Creek logging history, and research on LWD were reviewed together to evaluate persistence of historical logging impacts.
