Transport of Sediment-borne Carbon with Different Tillage Practices, USDA-ARS-NAEW

[ Update this Record ]

Abstract: (adapted from project decription)

Problems: Tillage practices impact the movement of sediment within
and from watersheds. How do conservation tillage practices influence
the movement of carbon attached to the sediments -- both loss and
deposition within a watershed as well as the amount moved from a small

Approach: In small watersheds instrumented with H-flumes and Coshocton
wheels, ... View entire text
