This volume is a synthesis of a long-term interdisciplinary study of watershed ecosystem responses to a forest-management disturbance. Specifically, a commercial clearcut cable logging experiment was initiated on Watershed 7 (WS 7) at the Coweeta Hydrologic Laboratory in 1975 to elucidate ecosystem structure and function by testing hypotheses associated with the hydrologic, biogeochemical, and ecological processes of mixed deciduous forests. Practical forest-management objectives were also integral to the research. This chapter presents a description of the study site followed by details on management prescriptions for the watershed and temporal variability in natural disturbances.

Keywords:   watershed ecosystem, forest management, forest distrubances, Watershed 7, temporal variability, clearcut cable logging, mixed deciduous forests
