Network publication summary: Influences of wetlands & forest harvesting and linkages to stream water quality
Leach JA, Buttle JM, Webster KL, Hazlett PW, Jeffries DS. 2020. Travel times for snowmelt-dominated headwater catchments: Influences of wetlands and forest harvesting, and linkages to stream water quality. Hydrological Processes.
Jason Leach and Kara Webster are from Natural Resources Canada, Canadian Forest Service and Jim Buttle is from Trent University. They work together in the Boreal Shield platform of the forWater Network.
Land disturbances, like clear-cut harvesting, can influence the concentrations of dissolved organic carbon (DOC) in stream water, which can have implications for downstream drinking water quality and treatment. Derek Mueller, a Masters student from the University of Alberta, investigated how these disturbances influence DOC dynamics during their journey from the land to the receiving stream in the Montane Cordillera ecozone. The Montane Cordillera is located in western Canada and has a landscape comprised of steeply rolling hillslopes as well as rugged mountains.
The Network provides insights into new scientific research for safe, secure drinking water---globally---which starts with resilient forests
