Abstract:

Examination of expected changes in water yield for a large area where vegetation thinning has been proposed in the Sierra Mountains of California indicates that the size of the area has an important bearing on annual runoff. At the smallest scales, some treated areas may have easily measured changes in water yield, with the potential for impacts on aquatic biota and water quality. The average changes in annual runoff per unit area for large tracts, however, are too small to be measured directly and thus must be quantified by using models to extrapolate existing knowledge.
