Forest management operations can impact soil water balance and hydrology indirectly through altered transpiration or directly through compaction and associated changes in soil properties. Dr. Karwan will review the common drivers of soil hydrology changes following forest operations, compare effects in conifer- vs. deciduous-dominated stands, and suggest practices to reduce negative impacts in the long term.
Please note that you will hear Dr. Karwan speaking at the beginning of the video but due to technical difficulties the slides are not visible until 1:38.
Recorded Tuesday March 15, 2016 from noon-1pm
Speaker: Diana Karwan, UMN Department of Forest Resources
