In 1977, Watershed 7 (WS 7) at the Coweeta Hydrologic Laboratory was clearcut and logged using a mobile cable system that could access logs up to 300 m from a road and suspend the logs completely above the ground for transport to the logging deck. Watershed (WS) 2, a 12.6-ha watershed adjacent to WS 7, served as the experimental control. This chapter (1) summarizes and evaluates the long-term hydrologic and water quality responses to forest management; and (2) links stream responses with process level research conducted within the watershed.
