Soil water concentrations of selected ions following clearcutting of a lodgepole pine forest
Subsurface water was collected from three 3.4 ha treatment sites during the summers of 1973 and 1974 to determine the effect of clearcutting lodgepole pine on the concentration of nutrients in subsurface water. One site was uncut; the other two sites, a "new" and an "old" clearcut, were clearcut in 1972 and 1965, respectively. Water quality was examined by collecting soil water samples from depths of 1.0, .75, .50 and .10 m with tube-tension lysimeters on each of the three sites. Sampling was conducted from late May to early October in 1973, and from mid-May until the end of July in 1974. When ...
