Defining Relationships among Indicators of Sediment, Erosion and Ecosystem Health in Low Gradient Streams

Date: 
2004 to 2006
Primary Contact: 
Research Location: 
Central Plains

Summary

CPCB facilitated a regional sediment workgroup consisting of aquatic ecologists, biologists, and hydrologists from throughout EPA Region 7 to evaluate linkages between sediment indicators and biological indicators within streams of the Central Plains region. The overall goal of this project was to promote the identification, quantification, and understanding of sediment and sediment erosion processes on aquatic life.
