Abstract

A major flood in February 1996 triggered more than 100 geomorphic features affecting forest roads in a 181 km2 study area in the western Cascade Range, Oregon. Eight types of features, including mass movements and fluvial features, were mapped, measured and analysed using geographic information systems and sediment budgets for the road network. The net effect of roads was an increase in basin-wide sediment production. Overall this study indicated that the nature of geomorphic processes influenced by roads is strongly conditioned by road location and construction practices, basin geology and storm characteristics
