The Effect of Vegetation Upon Snow Cover and Frost Penetration During the March 1936 Floods
Abstract:Although foresters and engineers have long debated the value of forests as a means of flood control, relatively few studies have been made. The floods of March 1936 occurred during the period when the author was conducting intensive studies concerning the effect of vegetation upon snow cover and soil temperature. The data presented show that hardwood forests are a favorable influence which should be considered in flood control programs.
