Using GIS, Terrain Attributes and Hydrologic Models to Predict the Risk of Soil Erosion and Stream Water Deterioration Caused by Forest Roads

Farabi, Houshang; James, Ryde


Most forestry systems use extensive unsealed road networks for timber harvesting and other forest management activities. These forest roads are significant sources of runoff and sediment to streams, causing impacts on the quantity and quality of stream water. The impact of unsealed forest road networks on stream water quality has long been recognised and documented by many researchers (e.g. Takken et al., 2005; Flanagan et al., 2003; Croke and Mockler, 2001; Megahan et al. 2001; Croke et al.,...[Show more]
