This handbook provides an analysis methodology that can be used to describe and evaluate changes to the water resource resulting from non-point silvicultural activities. This state-of-the-art approach for analysis and prediction of pollution from non point silvicultural activities is a rational estimation procedure that is most useful in making comparative analyses of management alternatives. This handbook also provides quantitative techniques for estimating potential changes in streamflow, surface erosion, soil mass movement, total potential sediment discharge, and temperature. Qualitative descussions of the impacts of silvicultural activities on dissolved oxygen, organic matter, nutrients, and introduced chemicals are included.
