|The Ministry of Forest Research section monitored the stand-level water balance at Date Creek to respond to public concern about the effects of clearcutting on stream flow (ie. increased stream flow, decreased low flows, low water table and altered timing of flows). The project was set up to determine if there are seasonal differences in stand-level water balance among the four treatment levels and to examine soil water availability by measuring precipitation, soil moisture and evapotranspiration.|
