Identifying high-runoff areas during peak streamflow on the Eastern Slopes of the southern Canadian Rocky Mountains

This study identifies and maps areas that contribute the greatest amount of runoff to peak flow periods for watersheds across the Eastern Slopes of the southern Canadian Rocky Mountains in Alberta, Canada. This work relates to current techniques for watershed assessment combined with hydrological modelling and seeks to improve our understanding and evaluation of risks to water resources as a result of forest management in Alberta’s Eastern Slopes. Identification of the zone of greatest runoff generation during peak streamflow will allow forest managers to evaluate the potential impacts of management activities in these sensitive areas based on recent advances in forest hydrology and watershed science.
