Effects of the Elwha River Dam Removal Project on Suspended-Sediment Concentrations in the River and Nearshore Environment
Suspended-sediment concentrations (SSCs) in the Elwha River and nearshore environment off the river mouth were observed in order to determine the effects of the Elwha dam removal project on sediment supply to the river and marine environment. River gauge data over a 4-month period of dam removal from November 2011 to March ...
The distribution of particulate organic carbon and sediment in the Elwha River dispersal system during the dam removal process
The delivery and deposition of particulate organic carbon (POC) into the marine environment via rivers impacts local biological and geological processes as well as the global carbon cycle. This is especially the case in small mountainous rivers, such as the Elwha River, Washington, which delivers a significant fraction of ...
