  • Use of the AccuPAR ceptometer to quantify effects of riparian vegetation removal on stream energy balance

    When the vegetation along a stream bank is removed, the solar load on the stream increases. This results in increased stream water temperature. Elevated stream temperatures degrade freshwater habitats, shifting species composition, and often endangering some of the species that live in the stream. An increasing awareness of this problem has led to thecreation of riparian strips to shade streams ...
