Evaluation of Conservation Practices in a Mixed-Land use Watershed Using Cumulative Effects Modeling and Interdisciplinary Analyses
To study the effectiveness of conservation practices at the watershed scale using data from an extensively researched watershed. The second is to examine how watershed restoration in a mixed-land use watershed can be optimized by considering its biophysical and socioeconomic characteristics. To show why (or why not) conservation practices are effective at the watershed scale with emphasis on statistical analysis of existing monitoring data, geo-spatial modeling, and integrated physical and socio-economic analyses. Our research includes an outreach plan for information transfer and data storage and retrieval.
