NotesWatershed habitat restoration has led to the placement of huge quantities of large woody debris in Oregon streams, however the impacts of these placements has often been poorly understood. In this thesis, the author uses hydraulic models to show changes in a stream “in aspects of the flow field that are relevant to juvenile Coho Salmon after an addition” of large wood (from the Abstract). Particular attention is given to high winter streamflow.
