Descriptif
This study aims to provide information about hydrological characteristics based on relatively easy to measure soil properties, resulting in the following objective : To determine how relatively easy to measure soil properties and their variation over space can be used to determine hydrological characteristics in a mountainous watershed. This objective can be reached by finding an answer to the following research questions : (i) Which soil properties influence hydrological characteristics ? (ii) What are the soil properties and landscape characteristics of the Gordon Gulch Valley ? (iii) How do these soil properties relate to the landscape characteristics in the Gordon Gulch Valley ? (iv) What are the current hydrological characteristics of the Gordon Gulch Valley ? (v) How do these hydrological characteristics relate to the landscape characteristics in the Gordon Gulch Valley ?
