Topic Sediment: Matthews Erosion Channel Banks (vol/yr) for All Basins
Caption:  The chart above shows fluvial erosion rate estimates for Class 1 and Class 2 streams in the Big River watershed, as determined by Matthews and Associates (2001). The classes refer to the California Department of Forestry convention where perennial fish bearing streams are Class 1, perennial non-fish bearing streams are Class 2 and intermittent streams are Class 3. Class 2 streams are afforded less protection from timber harvest than Class 1 streams are and they also yielded more erosion. See Info Links for more background information and links to references.
