The Geology of Puget Lowland Rivers

  title={The Geology of Puget Lowland Rivers},
  author={Derek B. Booth and Ralph A. Haugerud and Kathy Goetz Troost},
Regional and local geologic conditions encompass many of the influences that watersheds impose on their channels: watershed size, water and sediment delivery to channels, the geometry of channels, and the responsiveness of a stream or river to change. Restoration or rehabilitation projects that do not consider the limitations and opportunities posed by the geologic setting are likely to fail, because the newly created features will not be maintained by the geologic conditions and geomorphic… CONTINUE READING
