Abstract

North Fish Creek, Wisconsin, served as a case study of the hydrogeomorphic responses of streams in the northern Great Lakes region to widespread clear-cut logging and deforestation following European settlement. This study also examined geomorphic responses in the context of both land use impacts and the timing of large floods from approximately 1880 to 1995. Field studies were combined with hydrologic and sediment-load modeling to evaluate geomorphic responses in relation to stream position. Lastly, geomorphic recovery rates following decreases in agricultural activity during the recent decades were evaluated
