||Habitat: Average Embeddedness
||Caption: Average pool tail embeddedness for streams in the Big River area ranged from 1.2 (Rocky Gulch) to 3.6 (Caspar Creek). 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). See "Habitat: Box Plots of Percent Canopy" topic for illustration of the variation associated with this parameter.
