Title: The Effects of Climate Change and Urbanization on the Runoff of the Rock Creek Basin Climate changes brought on by global warming are expected to have a signiftcant affect on the Pacific Northwest hydrology during the 21 51 Century. Current research anticipates higher mean annual temperatures and an intensification of the hydrological cycle. In this study, we quantified land cover changes in the upper basin of the watershed, assessed stream flow changes at the stream gage during the same period, and mapped changes in the riparian vegetation community in the lower basin. This allowed us to assess the effect of urbanization on riparian vegetation via altered stream hydrology. Cited by: [1] To gain better understanding of the effects of urbanization on organic matter transport in rivers, we quantified total organic carbon loading from point and non‐point urban sources within the metropolitan area of Sacramento and compared these loads to the amount of organic carbon carried in the downstream Sacramento River. Median total organic carbon (TOC) concentrations in the Cited by: 1. Introduction. Urbanization alters natural stream flow regimes (e.g. Hammer, , Booth and Jackson, , Schueler et al., ) but the nature of these changes has not been fully characterized due to a lack of appropriate high-resolution records for flow, rainfall and land study used hydrologic records at minute increments, which allowed analyses of event-scale flows and event Cited by: 9.

Purpose and Scope. This report describes the physical (stream hydrology, water temperature, and stream habitat), chemical (nutrients and pesticides), and biological (algae, macroinvertebrate, and fish assemblages) characteristics of stream ecosystems in 28 watersheds along a gradient of urbanization in the Willamette River basin and surrounding area of Oregon and southwestern Washington from .   A set of historical and future land cover maps were assembled to represent the urbanization process. Two forcing datasets were employed to drive the DHSVM model. The first is a long-term observation based dataset (), which was used as inputs for calibrating and validating DHSVM, as well as evaluating the urbanization : Gang Zhao.
