Modelling the probability of salmonid egg pocket scour due to floods1

  author={M. Lapointe and Brett Eaton and S Driscoll and C Latulippe}
Flood disturbance plays a key but complex role in structuring lotic ecosystems. Empirical models proposed here allow salmonid resource managers to quantify the probability of egg pocket scour during floods and to predict how the expected losses vary with flood strength and reach characteristics. The models are based on comparisons be tween published salmonid egg pocket depth criteria and statistics on the intensity and spatial distribution of scour and fill produced by three flood events of… CONTINUE READING
