Effects of Prescribed Fire on Sediment and Nutrient Loads in Southeastern U.S. Forests
Entry ID: USDA_effectsofprescribedfire

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: We used the nutrient cycling model NuCM (Nutrient Cycling Model) as our
platform for predicting stream and soil nutrient response after forest
management with prescribed fire. Study sites were located in the Nantahala
National Forest in the southern Appalachian mountains, the Uwharrie National
Forest in the piedmont, and the Croatan National Forest and the Alligator River
National Wildlife Refuge ... View entire text

Quality Field data collection followed well-established protocols of water quality
sampling schemes. To maintain data quality and accuracy, data collectors
worked on four-person teams that rotated daily, thus varying team composition
in an effort to minimize any collection bias. Additionally, each person worked
