||Habitat: Lower Big River Embeddedness
||Caption: The above chart illustrates results of pool tail embeddedness ratings conducted by CDFG or Georgia Pacific during stream habitat surveys in the Lower Big River, including those pool tails deemed unsuitable for spawning due to bedrock or other conditions. Embeddedness was visually rated at each pool tail to describe the depth to which gravel or cobbles is buried in fine sediment. Rating 1 describes a relatively low level of embeddedness (0-25% buried) and optimum conditions for spawning and incubation of salmonids. Rating 4 describes very high levels of embeddedness (75-100% buried). Pools tails deemed unsuitable for spawning were not rated. Data are provided by California Department of Fish and Game, Sacramento. Click on Info Links for more information.
