Title: Woody debris in fjord sediments influenced by localized logging in Barkley Sound, British Columbia
Author: Carter, Cameron
Abstract: The focus of this study was to examine the impacts of logging activity on the concentration of particulate woody debris deposited in three rivers (Sarita, Franklin, and Effingham) that feed into Barkley Sound. A greater percentage of previously logged area within a 500-meter buffer is representative of less woody debris in the proximal fjord sediments. Within both the buffer and over entire drainage basins, the data indicate a positive correlation between the amount of fully grown forest and woody debris found in marine sediments.
