Forest Roads and Sediment Project at the Reynolds Homestead: Field Work Update, Summer 2012

We are nearly two-thirds of the way finished with rainfall simulation experiments to measure sediment delivery from forest road approaches to stream crossings at the Reynolds Homestead. We have been doing three rainfall simulation experiments at intensities ranging from 20

Forest roads and sediment project: Field work update – first rainfall simulation experiment

On Saturday, February 11, 2012, Brian Morris, AJ Lang, and I performed our first rainfall simulation experiments on a freshly re-opened forest road approach to a stream crossing at the Reynolds Homestead. I had been looking forward to this day

Forest roads and sediment project: Field work update – dirtbag connection

Today I finished work on connecting sediment collection bags (aka Dirtbags) on six road approaches to stream crossings at the Reynolds Homestead Forest Resources Research Center. Rainfall simulations will be conducted on these sites to measure surface runoff, infiltration, and

Field work update: Forest Roads and Sediment Project at Reynolds Homestead

Part of my dissertation research involves the measurement of soil erosion rates from forest roads in the Virginia Piedmont. All of the road segments in this study are located at the Reynolds Homestead Forest Resources Research Center in Critz, VA.
