Abstract or Summary
  • Three (3) streams with desired similar characteristics, located in the Blue River Watershed in the Central Oregon Cascades, were studied to better understand the impacts of forest harvest on stream temperature and aquatic habitat. Of the 3 designated streams, North Fork Quartz Creek, Blue River Face, and Wolf Mann, only the North Fork Quartz Creek Timber Sale has gone through. North Fork Quartz Creek was studied for 2 consecutive summers, pre and post-harvest, while the Blue River Face and Wolf Mann streams were studied for 2 consecutive pre-harvest summers. The North Fork Quartz Creek received 3 different logging prescriptions designated as control, buffered, and unbuffered. Pre and post-harvest data was analyzed to capture any impact to stream temperature resulting from the varying logging practices. The data did riot produce any extremely obvious results, but it does appear that the post-harvest buffered stream temperature rose by approximately 0.5 to 1°C. The Blue River Face and Wolf Mann stream data analysis will serve as a good baseline for future studies.
