Hydrogeomorphic effects of beaver dams in Glacier National Park, Montana

Auteurs :
MEENTEMEYER, R.K.
BUTLER, D.R.

Description :
This study provides additional data on sedimentation and stream flow in order to better understand the efficacy of beaver dams to trap sediment and alter the flow regime of streams, respectively. Data are collected on sedimentation depth (thickness) and volume, as well as stream velocity and discharge above and below beaver dams in eastern Glacier National Park (GNP), Montana. In addition, measurements of dam and pond morphology are examined in relation to sedimentation and flow alteration patterns.
