The report summarizes progress from October 1988 to May 1989 on an ongoing research project to investigate the chemicals and biological response of five Northern Appalachian Plateau streams to episodic changes in flow. The research described is part of the U.S. EPA Episodic Response Project (ERP), Aquatic Effects Research Program. Research includes monitoring of stream discharge, episodic stream chemistry, precipitation amounts and intensity, and snowpack chemistry and water equivalent. Biological research includes bethic invertebrate surveyss stream bioassays with brook trout and sculpins, and tracking of brook trout movement during episodes using radiotelemetry.
