This chapter describes the assessment of dissolved organic carbon (DOC) concentrations in two streams: Big Hurricane Branch, which drains Watershed 7 (WS 7) and was clearcut using cable logging in 1977; and Hugh White Creek which drains WS 14, one of the long-term reference watersheds at Coweeta Hydrologic Laboratory. The study aims to determine whether DOC concentrations in Big Hurricane Branch became more similar to those in the reference stream as the forest on the clearcut watershed recovered; to describe seasonal and interannual patterns of DOC concentration and transport in the two streams; and to explore potential causes of the seasonal and interannual patterns observed.
