Arizona Watershed Stewardship Guide: Life in the Watershed -- Part I: Watershed EcologyEmanuel, Robert; Radden, Russ; Clark, Richard J.; Natural Resources & the Environment, School of (College of Agriculture and Life Sciences, University of Arizona (Tucson, AZ), 2005)Arizona Watershed Stewardship Guide was created to help individuals and groups build a mutual foundation of basic knowledge about watersheds in Arizona. It is intended to help Arizonans understand and be good stewards of their watersheds. The guide was designed to compliment the mission of Arizona Master Watershed Steward program to educate and train citizens across the state of Arizona to serve as volunteers in the monitoring, restoration, conservation, and protection of their water and watersheds. The guide consists of 10 self-contained modules which teach about one or more important aspects of watershed science or management.
The effects of watershed treatments on the relationship between runoff peak and volume for the Beaver Creek watershed, ArizonaHawkins, Richard H.; Haddad, Munir Salim, 1953- (The University of Arizona., 1990)The relationship between runoff peak and volume was examined for ten sub-watersheds in the Beaver Creek, Arizona watershed. Least square analyses, linear regression, and coefficient analysis were utilized to evaluate the effects of treatments. Different treatments, such as clear cutting, uprooting, herbicide, and thinning, were applied on watersheds. For most of the watersheds, treatments were shown to have no significant effect on the relationship. However, herbicide treatment and clear cutting treatment in watersheds 3 and 12 respectively showed highly significant increases in peak flows. Significant increase in peak for the smaller events resulted from scattered patch cutting in watershed #10.
