New paper published on erosion modeling on forest roads

Kris Brown had another paper published.  The study evaluated the model Water Erosion Prediction Project (WEPP) in predicting event-based sediment yield and runoff for a series of rainfall experiments on six stream-crossing sections of forest roads with different intensities of best management practices.  For

Forest road gravel cover and reduced sediment delivery to stream crossings paper accepted

Kris Brown’s paper on “the effect of increasing gravel cover on forest roads for reduced sediment delivery to stream crossings” was accepted this week in Hydrological Processes. Abstract Direct sediment inputs from forest roads at stream crossings are a major

Review article on forest operations and sediment in the Piedmont by Kris Brown

Proceedings from the 18th Central Hardwood Forest Conference in 2012 were published this week.  Kris Brown has a nice review paper in the proceedings that documents BMP implementation and effectiveness for water quality protection associated with forest roads and skid trails,

How good is good enough?

Rhett Jackson, from the Warnell School of Forestry and Natural Resources at University of Georgia, visited us today for a departmental seminar.  His topic on forestry best management practices (BMPs) was interesting especially the question at the heart of his
