Earthquakes, Trees, and the 'New Normal'
(University of Canterbury. School of Forestry, 2011)
Comparison between meteorological data from the New Zealand National Institute of Water and Atmospheric Research (NIWA) and data from independent meteorological stations
Background Hybrid eco-physiological/mensurational models of forest production generally require monthly meteorological estimates at local points in the landscape as inputs. Where to obtain these estimates and how best to ...
New Zealand Perspectives of Forest Hydrology
(University of Canterbury. School of Forestry, 2015)
Erosion sources and sediment pathways to streams associated with forest harvesting activities in New Zealand
Forest harvesting and associated soil disturbances (e.g., earthworks) can increase catchment sediment yield, with potentially negative consequences for water quality and aquatic habitat. A major challenge for water quality ...
Sediment associated with forest operations in the Piedmont region
Reduced-impact forestry uses best management practices (BMPs) during operations to minimize soil erosion and sediment delivery to streams and to maintain or improve site productivity. However, the effi cacy of specifi c ...
Estimating costs and effectiveness of upgrades in forestry best management practices for stream crossings
© 2015 by the authors. Forestry Best Management Practices (BMPs) are used for protection of water quality at forest stream crossings, yet effects and costs for gradients of BMPs are not well documented. We evaluated forty-two ...
