Characteristics of hummocks and hummocked wetlands in Colorado
There is considerable uncertainty regarding mechanisms of hummock formation. The first step in assessing hummocks in Colorado was to compare the characteristics associated with hummocked and non-hummocked sites. To do this, site characteristics of hummocked and non-hummocked riparian areas and wetlands across Colorado were sampled. Two site characteristics were positively related, and three site characteristics were negatively related to hummock occurrence. Three groups of hummocked wetlands with distinct morphological, vegetative and climatic characteristics were identified. A finer-scale ...
