The H60 concept refers to the elevation of the snowline when the upper 60% of a watershed is covered in snow. Timber harvesting in this “snow zone” is thought to have a greater influence on peak flows due to changes in snow accumulation and snowmelt when the forest canopy is removed. To account for this influence, the Interior Watershed Assessment Procedure provides a weighting mechanism for harvesting proposed in this zone. To test this principle, a 5-year study to look at snowlines and… CONTINUE READING
