AbstractThe overall effects of vegetative cover on runoff and sediment yields are well known. Many references to the qualitative and quantitative effects can be found throughout the natural science and engineering literature. What is lacking are studies which detail the effects of cover on specific hydrologic and hydraulic processes or their representative parameters so that the results may be used for simulation modeling. Data from 108 small plot rainfall simulator experiments on pinyon-juniper woodlands in Arizona and New Mexico were analyzed to determine quantifiable effects of cover on hydrologic and sediment yield parameters. Significant effects were identified and linear models were developed to quantify them. Other published techniques for rangelands were applied to the data with limited success.
