Abstract

The aim of this study was to quantitatively test the well-known hypothesis that a near surface permeability contrast, caused by the surface compaction associated with forest roads, can result in diverted subsurface flow paths that produce increased up-slope pore pressures and slope failure. The work presented here is a simulation based effort that focuses on a site within the H.J. Andrews Experimental Forest. It combines physics-based variably saturated subsurface flow with slope variability analysis for the forest road problem
