Object & Deliverables
University of Alberta develop forest watershed assessment tools to help evaluate impacts of forest disturbance on streamflow & other hydrologic indicators for forested land to support development/evaluation of forest management plans.
The over-arching goals of the research project included the development of a hydrologic risk assessment framework to enable a more accurate evaluation of the projected impacts of forest disturbance on streamflows and other hydrologic indicators of the forested landbase of Alberta.
The final report was presented by Michael Johann Neil Wagner, as a thesis submitted to the University of Alberta Department of Renewable Resources , Fall, 2010.
The study explored the potential for linking current management planning tools to quantifiable relationships describing regional hydrologic response based on a risk assessment framework.
