Abstract

The goal of this study was to quantify the effect of unpaved roads on runoff and sediment production on St John, and to better understand the key controlling factors. To this end runoff and sediment yields were measured from July 1996 to March 1997 from 3 plots on naturally vegetated slopes, 4 plots on unpaved road surfaces and 2 cutslope plots. Sediment yields were also measured from 7 road segments. The results assess the effects of unpaved roads on runoff and erosion at different spatial scales, and provide the process-based understanding necessary for planning, improved road design and mitigation
