Summer-dry headwater streams provide an important interface between aquatic and terrestrial environments. Six summer-dry streams differing in flow duration and exposure were studied in western Oregon. On a temporal and a spatial scale, nitrate patterns in such systems reflect the close connection to subsurface flow and nitrification/denitrification processes in the soil. Retention efficiency for sediment generated from a forest road was high. In ephemeral streams, 60–80% of suspended sediment… CONTINUE READING
