Urbanization alters watershed hydrology in the Piedmont of North Carolina

  title={Urbanization alters watershed hydrology in the Piedmont of North Carolina},
  author={Johnny L. Boggs and Ge Sun},
The ecohydrologic effects of urbanization that is dominated by forests clearing are not well understood in the southeastern United States. We utilized long-term monitoring data to quantify the annual water balance, stormflow characteristics, and seasonal flow patterns of an urbanized watershed (UR) (0Ð70 km2) and compared it to a fully forested watershed (FOR) (2Ð95 km2) in central North Carolina. The goal of this study was to assess how past urbanization altered watershed hydrology and to… CONTINUE READING
