An analysis of the effects of vegetation changes on water yield from block-cut and un-cut timber areas. Snow accumulation and water content are measured by snow survey course and standard sampling procedures. Courses were strategically located as to cut and un-cut areas on different slopes, aspect and altitude. An attempt is made to establish a pattern of snow accumulation and melting in adjacent cut-over areas and un-cut areas with regard to aspect. Details of methods are explained and the data collected are analyzed in the summary of tables and graphs.
