A REGIONAL EXPERIMENT TO EVALUATE EFFECTS OF FIRE AND FIRE SURROGATE TREATMENTS IN THE SAGEBRUSH STEPPE (I).
Project Number: 5362-13610-009-19
Start Date: May 22, 2010
End Date: May 22, 2011
Characterize the hydrologic and erosion impacts of different levels of juniper encroachment and juniper control methods of fire and mechanical cutting.
Simulated rainfall and concentrated overland flow methods will be implemented along a gradient of increasing juniper canopy dominance both before and after prescribed fire and mechanical cutting treatments. Documents Reimbursable with USGS. Log 28426
