Controls on and trends in sediment and particulate organic matter storage by instream wood in north Saint Vrain Creek, Colorado
Sediment and particulate organic matter (POM) retained by wood within the bankfull channel were evaluated for 58 stream reaches at the headwaters of North Saint Vrain Creek, Colorado. Wood-induced storage in headwater regions is hypothesized to be important in buffering downstream transport of material. However, the magnitude of storage has not been thoroughly investigated in relation to different potential control variables (e.g., wood volume, channel gradient, channel confinement, and riparian basal area) and spatial scales (jam, reach, and drainage basin) of control. Multiple and single ...
